This sad garden will make you feel better about your own garden! It is riddled with weeds and the few buildings in the gardens are in need of repair. There is no café (in case you were hoping for one). The botanical gardens are actually quite small. If you walk up the steps you will find yourself in another municipal... More

We were very disappointed with the Gardens. They need a lot of tender loving care, and are generally in a very run down state. It is an excellent site but needs a huge injection of money and effort to make it worth a visit.

It's free, it's pretty, it's central, it has a great view from the hill above, benches, trees, plants ... heck, it's a botanical garden. It's not going to knock your socks off, likely, but it's the kind of spot that makes you feel like you're in a great place, breathing great fresh air and enjoying a great, beautiful view. It... More

As someone else said, worth a look. However I have to say it has an end of season feeling to it at the moment- lots of things going over, not much in flower or looking its best, and weeds all over the place. Can't help feeling it needs a bit more care.

Seemed tired and unloved a bit. If I had had my gardening gloves with me I would have pulled out some of the weeds!

This is a great place to visit when the weather is good. Apart from the obvious - plants and trees, there are paths winding up to the top of the hill where you can relax and enjoy the views or play games on the grass. In the park below, there is a good playground for children, as well as an... More

It is a place to observe the nature, and the breath taking view over the lake Geneva; changes can be observed from the chilly winter to the blossoming springs, a nice walk will bring you on top of the hill, and you will be enjoying many little paths to go down through the alpine garden and it's beautiful rock gardens....

This is a nice park in Lausanne. Pack a picnic, take a nice stroll, and live life like a local. When we lived in Lausanne it was a great place to run.

Interetsting plants, but nothing was at its best and lots and lots o weeding would be needed to tidy it up - The Swiss seem to be good at tidy ormally. Great views but for the plants go earlier in the year than October
