I love this park. They have a book tree, where you can take or leave a book. Beautiful flowers and a rose garden. In the fall you can collect chestnuts and seeds from the flowers. There are chickens, ducks, goats and birds kept on site and artists have a workshop in which to display their art and meet with buyers.

Simply a place of quiet contemplation. Perfect for a picnic, a quiet read or to walk of a long lunch. High above Laval with views over the old city, it has a wonderful range of flowers, shrubs and magnificent trees.

This is a must in Laval. One of the nicest gardens I have seen in France with beautiful viewpoints overlooking the city and the chateau. Huge sequoia tree is impressive..

Not a large park but with several different areas(rose garden, herbaceous borders, shrubs and mature trees etc) that are all meticulously maintained. A lovely spot to spend a relaxing time after doing the sights of the town. A few animals and some aviaries will entertain the children.

This is a lovely, well-maintained garden with lovely views over the city, the castle, the river and bridges. It has a surprising animal and bird enclosure. There are plenty of seats throughout to enjoy the surroundings.

I was on holidays visiting my friend in Laval and she brought me here. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The garden is beautiful and well kept. There are lovely scenic walks. The view of the town and castle are gorgeous. There is also a play park and some goats and birds in enclosures. My friend... More
