Pleasant park in centre of town

If you are on a day trip to Calais this is a nice enough place to pass through to use the kids playground and have a picnic if you are saving money on your costs.

I love finding playgrounds in the cities I'm visiting! This was no exception with a few interesting climbing frames (aimed at different ages) which enabled my little one (5) to run around safely for 30 minutes during our day trip. The park itself is a lovely calm oasis in the heart of Calais which is clearly enjoyed by locals.

WE VISITED THIS PARK ON OUR VISIT TO CALAIS LAST YEAR IN SEPTEMBER 2014. there was a lot more to do and see than we thought there was at first and was so good it turned a 1 houres visit in to a 2-30 minute afternoon lovely time spent by all.

Very quiet location is just 15 mins walk to the ferry terminal. Mini-supermarket close by, along with bars and restaurants.

We always stop and breathe in Calais before onward journeys. You know that feeling of, "We are in FRANCE!" Well for us it starts in Calais and the Parc Richelieu is part of that, it is just a French municipal parc but atmospheric, honoured from the statues at the front to the labelling of the trees. It is everything that... More

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.

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
