To protect, improve and promote the parks and gardens of the Centre region, this is the objective set by the members of the Association des Parcs et Jardins en Région Centre. Among them, nearly 130 owners or managers of public and private parks, whether or not they are open to visitors, and many "amateurs" have chosen to work for the preservation of this historical, cultural, botanical and landscape heritage. Created in 1990, the association is supported by the Conseil Régional du Centre and the State.
