The first developments of this existing green space, then called the 25 August Park, date back to September 1979 and made this site a rest, leisure and play area for children. In October 1985 it was named Square d'Urmitz, after the German twin town of Noës near Troyes. Eric Oden, then mayor of Urmitz, unveiled the sign officializing the name of the square and offered to his counterpart mayor Roger Dujeancourt, a shrub symbolizing the friendship between the two sister cities, which was planted near the sign.
In April 2012, a ginkgo (also known as the tree of a thousand ecus), offered by the Syndicat Départ to its 42 member towns, including Les Noës, was in turn planted during an official ceremony.
At the initiative of Jean-Pierre Abel, Mayor of Les Noës and President of the Syndicat Départ, this symbolic gesture was intended to partially offset the carbon footprint left by the union's activities during the development of the territorial coherence scheme (SCot).
A real green lung of the commune, this square is a place of rest and relaxation, always much appreciated by the Noyats.
