The name of the park is derived from the old name of the area “Moquesouris” translated as “mock mouse”. It was a place of mills which generally attract mice. Later, these mills were abandoned.

The area is also the place of the 13th century legend of the giant Isoire being slain by Guillaume d’Aquitaines.
