The La Touques River*, flowing into the sea in Deauville/Trouville-sur-Mer, was displaced in the 1860s to construct the railway line coming from Paris. The irregular course of the river was adjusted to avoid building a bridge and the meander currently known as "la rivière morte de la Touques” progressively abandoned. The 1.5 km-long pedestrian-only banks are great to recharge your batteries in the middle of nature. You can relax on a bench, play petanque or just enjoy the children's playground. Fishing-lovers can enjoy the view of ducks and swans, but also fish carps, as this activity is permitted.

*The Touques River is one of the main rivers of the Pays d'Auge, together with Dives. It has its source in the Orne department and flows over 108 km before reaching the English Channel between Deauville and Trouville-sur-mer.
