The "Gardens of La Muette" flourish in a walled park of nearly three hectares. They benefit from the "Remarkable Garden" label issued by the Ministry of Culture (six gardens are thus labelled in the department of Aisne) and are included in a perimeter listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historic Monuments in December 2004 (walls, pavilions, gates, towers, pigeon loft).
The charm of the place lies in the dominant location of the main building and its gardens, and in the remarkable succession of its walls, which are at the same time: enclosures, retaining walls for terraced gardens and fence walls of the estate. This defensive development, which dates back to the Middle Ages, when the Château de la Muette firmly controlled an important road and continued during the political and religious unrest of the 16th century, is quite infrequent in the region, with the exception of the royal and princely fortresses established in the Valois.
The Parc de la Muette, although structured by successive interventions, mainly since the 16th century, offers a coherent, pleasant and balanced whole. Its landscaped garden character, between successive lawn terraces (English influence) and embroidery (French influence), offers views and atmospheres to be directly related to the architectural elements of the place.
