The “Parc de La Demi-Lune” is the oldest park in the département.
Created in the early 1950s by the Lannemezan hospital, its management was handed over to an ESAT (formerly a CAT) in 1988.

The hospital’s original project was innovative in that it enabled it to perpetuate its work-based rehabilitation activities through a tourist activity, thereby helping to raise the profile of its patients.
Long known as “the hospital park”, it has been part of the cultural heritage of the Lannemezan plateau for two generations.

The park was dormant for several years, but has been the subject of a modernisation and development programme since 2011.

Its operations have been adapted to meet the new demands of its customers, while retaining its missions as a medico-social establishment in the public hospital sector: to welcome disabled people and offer them rewarding work adapted to their pathologies.

The original park, a place for meetings and festivities, with its deer, little train, mini-golf and pedalos, has been extended to include a wide range of activities: the carousel, jungle gym, baby bob, mini-farm, play areas and two accrobranches courses (one for adults, one for children) with their zip lines above the lake, and more activities to discover very soon!

The Demi-Lune bistro and picnic areas, accessible to people with reduced mobility, allow visitors to eat on site.

The park has embarked on a process to obtain the Tourism and Disability label, and all the recommendations for making the Demi-Lune leisure park accessible are gradually being applied, in line with the requirements of the Tourism and Disability Directive.
