The park also includes the Trianons gardens, including Marie-Antoinette's Anglo-Chinese style garden, the king's vegetable garden and two large bodies of water: the Grand Canalet, the Swiss water body. This destination has a rich historical, architectural and artistic heritage, as evidenced by its castles, abbeys and royal cities, the Yvelines department can also boast of having a vast preserved natural area. Its 70,000 hectares of forests, criss-crossed by multiple hiking trails, and its beautiful parks and gardens are all assets that delight walkers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
