GÉRESME PARK

Open all year long, this 21 hectares park, of which 19 are accessible to the public, is a place of promenade, relaxation and observation.
The Géresme Park is a haven of peace for animals and a quiet green location to come spend time with family, friends or even alone and enjoy the landscape and the site's richness.
It is a familiar place for nesting birds and owls that benefit from the old trees and the bushes to rest and to start a family that you will be able to observe in the spring.
In its paths, you might run into goats, deer and Chinese pigs.
The river offers an ideal habitat for swans, mallards, geese and fish that look over you from the corner of their eye during your picnic, on the lookout for the pieces of bread that you will leave them.
When night falls and life becomes quiet again, the squirrels, foxes, herons and frogs enjoy the park, and if you are curious enough, you can find their tracks the next morning on the paths or in the ditches.
Not to mention the flora, which is equally impressive with old and remarkable trees such as bald cypresses, weeping beeches, black alders, and also endangered flowers, which will disappear if we don't protect them (such as orchids), as well as medicinal plants.

History :

Géresme was a hamlet attached to Crépy-en-Valois, located between Bouillant and Crépy-en-Valois. The name of Géresme was first found in 1237.

In 1789, the priory of Géresme was sold to the Duke of Orleans, then to the Picard family, to the Abbot Vilain, and finally to the North Coal Miners in the 40's (the 17th of September 1948) to make a holiday camp.

The castle of Géresme was bought by the municipality of Crépy-en-Valois in 1956.

In 1965, a public survey suggested the town hall that a theme park and a nautical center should be built in the site of Géresme, nevertheless, the project was abandoned.

On March 1, 1974, the City of Crépy-en-Valois became the owner of Géresme' park and castle.

On July 14, 1978, the park was finally inaugurated and opened to the public.

Our thanks go to Christelle Durussel and Janine Assié (municipal records) for this information.
