The park of château Ferrières has the reputation of being "the most beautiful English garden on the continent". It was created in 1855 by the English architect and landscape gardener Joseph Paxton for the Baron James de Rothschild.
The symmetric and regular design of the near surroundings of the building is opposed to the very free and romantic concept of the huge park. Around a large pond and two panoramic points the main park forms a majestic and inspired landscape. The species of trees have been chosen for their impressing size as well as for the colours of their leaves. In autumn at the hunting season, the park shows its most attractive aspects.
At the origin, a great importance was accorded to the flower garden and its huge greenhouses. The greenhouses were considered as the showcase of an important collection and were used, according to the English fashion, as well as a plant production centre as a place for pleasure strolls.
