    It is also home to the Villa du Parc, a contemporary art center of national interest, where frequent exhibitions are held. The villa was originally built in 1865 for Claude-Philippe Dusonchet, syndic and then mayor of Annemasse between 1854 and 1871. The property also included an outbuilding, and was bought by the City of Annemasse in 1930 to create a public garden. This makes it the city's oldest park!
    It took the name Montessuit in 1963, in tribute to the former mayor of Annemasse Claudius Montessuit (1929-1963).
    The park was completely refurbished and enlarged in 2008 by landscape architects "Atelier Fontaine", and was awarded the "refuge LPO" label in 2010.
    The site also features a stele in tribute to the Righteous, inaugurated on April 28, 2013.
