    Following a major ground collapse at the level of the spillway of the large pond, access to the site is prohibited. Access to the cheese factory remains possible via the D932.

    The site of the Nine Fountains, redeveloped within the framework of the Urban Natural Park of Marsan, makes us discover a natural and architectural heritage typical of the Landes of Gascogne.
    The rehabilitation of an old airial and the construction of a goat house have allowed the installation of a goat farmer who proposes the tasting and the sale of his products on the site.
    On the nature side, a mosaic of natural habitats has developed around the ponds and is now preserved. One finds there alternately aquatic herbariums, lawns, moors and several types of woodland. This floristic diversity favors the observation of many unusual animals, among which the emblematic European pond turtle, a protected freshwater turtle.

    For a better reception of the visitors, a pedestrian circuit, thematic panels as well as a parking lot and a picnic area have been set up.
