Your visit to La Garenne
Work necessary to redevelop the Begnins-Vich road began on April 24, 2023 and will end at the beginning of 2024. disturbancestraffic and detours are therefore to be expected.
The work will be carried out while maintaining an open half roadway for descending traffic. Upbound traffic will be diverted through Luins, with the exception of PostBus buses which will be able to use the road in both directions during the entire works. This variant is possible with traffic lights dedicated to buses to allow them access to the climb to Begnins.
Signage will indicate road and cyclist diversions throughout the work period.
We look forward to welcoming you to the park.

Welcome to everyone
Public with reduced mobility and hearing impaired
Public with reduced mobility: The park is almost entirely wheelchair-accessible, sanitation facilities included, indoor as well as outdoor. The woodpecker hut, built on a tree, is the only place not accessible by wheelchairs.
Hearing impaired audience: All our films are accessible to hearing-impaired visitors thanks to a hearing loop.
It is now possible for visitors to go inside several enclosures. Therefore, dogs are not allowed in the park, even on a leash, to avoid any incident with animals. The only dogs allowed are guide dogs and assistance dogs intended to help disabled people.
