Le Square Lucien Beaufrère, or ‘Jardin de l’Abbaye’ is surrounded by the Yèvre river and the Canal de Berry, and has been a listed historic monument since August 1996. It was developed in the middle of the Art Deco period (between 1925 – 1935) by architect Eugène Henry Karcher from Anjou. This garden was the first to be illuminated by electricity and is the pride and joy of the city. During your walk in this beautiful landscaped setting you can discover the war memorial, unveiled in 1933, a rest area, the pond, and gates with wrought iron doves. This peaceful place is a real tribute to Vierzon craftsmanship with its ironworks and mosaics made of Denbac tiles.

An auditorium, first unveiled in 1935, is situated at the entrance to the square and consists of a stage, orchestra pit, artist’s dressing room and a washhouse downstairs. Your visit will then lead you to a romantic garden with numerous varieties of trees.
