The Touques is one of the Pays d'Auge's main rivers. It rises in the Orne département, flows for 108 km and reaches its mouth at Deauville/Trouville-sur-Mer before emptying into the English Channel. This haven of peace and quiet runs through Saint-Arnoult for around 1.5 km.

Its capricious course was altered in the 1860s, to allow the creation of the railroad line from Paris. A canal was dug, leaving this meandering river to become the "dead river of the Touques".

Its 1.5 km-long banks are entirely pedestrianized, allowing you to recharge your batteries in the midst of greenery. You can relax on a bench, play pétanque or enjoy the children's playground. As well as ducks and swans, anglers can also fish for carp, as fishing is permitted.
