The landscaping of the 3-hectare park, which surrounds the 16th century castle, was entrusted to Gilles Clément and the landscaper François Navarro.
The project for the redevelopment of the Château de Mouans-Sartoux Park, designed by Gilles Clément, a gardener and landscape architect, in collaboration with landscape architect François Navarro, was created to highlight the park’s initial modes of use and to increase the circulation of visitors between The «Glade of the gardens», around the castle, and the «Bois des transparences».
A beautiful square platform in front of the castle hosts the summer events, «a garden of 7 colors» alongside a new meadow planted with figs and olive trees. The terrace of the plum trees and the wisteria of the north of the Castle are the first step towards the «Bois des transparences». In the woods, a group of small clearings punctuated with 26 stone monoliths inspired by a block of stone preexisting on the spot are used as benches, fountains in bird bath, bollards and water points on which are engraved names corresponding to the French names of the plants present in the garden of 7 colors.
The «Ateliers Pédagogiques» created by Marc Barani and the «Préau des enfants», where their works are exhibited, focus on children and adults. The «rural» esplanade is treated in olive groves and figueraie as originally, it is a multi-generational reception place intended to receive the many events organized in Mouans-Sartoux.
