An urban park on the outskirts of the city center.
Welcome to Parc des Moulins! Do you know why it's called Parc des Moulins? Quite simply because it adjoins the former Notre-Dame and de la Rave mills, witnesses to Troyes' industrial history.

Situated a stone's throw from the Sénardes district, between the Rue des Ponts, the Rue Bas Trévois, the Rue Guillaume le Bé and the Chaussée du Vouldy, this vast green park - it covers an area of 20 hectares - is known as the "Site des Moulins" or, to local residents, the "Parc des Corbeaux".

It is home to a wide variety of trees - redwoods, ash trees and magnificent weeping willows - as well as a particularly rich array of local flora and fauna. Its charm and tranquillity make it an ideal place to enjoy nature.

The City of Troyes has gradually acquired plots of land: in 1975, 3500m² on the rue des ponts side were the first beginnings of the Parc des Moulins. Then, from 2006 to 2009, the City of Troyes continued to expand the park.

The park was opened to the public in November 2011.

Today, the park is made up of a number of historic, landmark areas:

> The Maison des Maraîchers area
> The Henri area
> The "Mahieu" mansion area
> Play areas
