In the beginning of the 18th centuary, the artillary post of the defense was transformed into a long walkway popularly known as the Treille Walk / Promenade de la Treille. Two rows of chestnut trees are planted all along this way & the blossoming of these trees mark the arrival of spring in Switzerland. Le Banc de la Treille - world's longest wooden bench of 126m is in this park. From this point you can see the Bastion Park and the Salève & Jura mountains. This is an ideal place for picnic & for a romantic walk.
