Orléans has numerous modest-sized parks, but a favorite for running is the Parc Floral de la Source. Located 8 km south of the center, there are lovely landscaped gardens and paths. Adjacent to the Parc is the University of Orléans, which itself has some nice paths for running, including a loop around a small lake and paths south of Av. de Parc Floral. At the east end of campus, next to the stadium, is a terrific running track.
We’ve created a map to use as a guideline. One can put together 6-7 km combining the park, university, and a couple of laps around the track.
