From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Parc du Moulin Blanc is a private landscape park, arboretum, and botanical garden, open to the public, located in Saint-Zacharie, in the Massif de Sainte-Baume in the Var Department of France. It is classified by the Committee of Parks and Gardens of the French Ministry of Culture as among the Notable Gardens of France.[1]

The park was created in 1851 by Adolphe de Saporta, with landscape architect M. Drée. After Saporta's death, it was taken over by his son Garston de Saporta, a noted paleobotanist. The park is owned today by his descendants.

The arboretum displays mature varieties of trees from Europe, North America, and Asia, including magnolia, chestnut, plane trees, and a sequoia tree, as well a large stand of bamboo. The park is watered by several springs, and by two small streams, the Huveaune and the Peruy. Within the park is a 2800 square meter lake, with wild birds, including a heron.
