Full description
This park was created to guarantee the protection of one of the last plots of dry forest that exists in the city of Noumea. Covering an area of 34 hectares, it houses the only collection of live terrestrial animals of New Caledonia.

The park is home to several areas of dry forest, araucaria plantations, a palm grove and a collection of cacti. The animal collection numbers more than 700 animals, including several species endemic to New Caledonia. Birds, reptiles and endemic mammals are on show for visitors. Some remarkable species included in the park are the Cagou (Rhynochetos jubatus) the emblem of New Caledonia and protected bird, the Flying fox (Pteropus ornatus), and the Caledonian crow (corvus moneduloides).

Embark on an educational forest walk within the park and see some beautiful plantations (Araucariaceae, maquis minier and other collections of exotic plants, such as palms and cacti). Lastly, the Nature House, located at the entrance of the park, displays samples of rocks forming the Caledonian soil, as well as a history of the local fauna and flora.
