Chateau de Baron Roger Park

Chateau de Baron Roger Park was built by colonial governor, Baron Jacques Roger, who ruled the St. Louis area in the 1830s. He built the park as a weekend retreat on the banks of the Taouey River, a tributary of the Senegal River.  Located some 100 kilometers from St. Louis town, the park now resembles a jungle and is home to a few families.
