It's a fun and pleasant place to be, whether you're strolling through the garden or exploring it from the top of the lighthouse.

It features four ponds and educational furniture. A "contemporary" garden, with grasses and ornamental plants, faces a "traditional" garden with 21 varieties of roses, a vegetable garden and vines.

There are information terminals, turntables, sight glasses, an audio terminal in 3 languages (French, English, German) and a relief map (in Braille). These various information tools invite visitors to discover a range of anecdotes, sayings and the history of the lighthouse.

Visitors also have access to the first floor of the lighthouse, where there is a store and washrooms.
