Calme in the bustle

Take a few minutes to walk in this lovely park in the middle of town. Who would expect palm trees in Northern France!

We had stayed locally several times, but never really explored the park before. It is more varied than is obvious from a quick glance, with many different trees and shrubs. It is well-kept, with clean paths and a small lake. Combine it with a visit to the Musée Beaux Arts which is just opposite.

Liked- A nice little park with kids play ground , water feature and some sort of open theatre area. Seats by the bucket full and plenty of flowers. Disliked - the large groups of men (Asylum seeker type) hanging about and watching you closely .Felt very uneasy and we soon left.

Great park in the middle of Calais. Worth a walk around when the weather is nice and you can watch the locals playing french bowls aswell!

A lovely park with waterfalls, ponds and ducks. Beautifully planted and after passing through the town dozens of times over the years, my first visit on Saturday morning. The shade from the trees a relief from the blazing sun. The mistress of Admiral Lord Nelson, Emma Hamilton, was buried here although the area was devasted by shelling in WWI and... More
