A treasure in the evening

What a little gem. Floodlit at night with music speakers in the bushes. A delightful stroll after dinner.

This garden, right in the heart of the town of Coutances, Normandy, is a real treasure. The planting is outstanding and the theme changes every year, this year is 'power' . This ranges from designs for wind power, solar, fuel, oil, gas etc. and also boasts a working windmill, the sails go round! The borders are full of mixed perennials... More

Amazing displays, obviously lovingly done. Worth a visit and when you do you'll probably stay for quite a while.

This place is a haven for flower enthusiasts. The gardening work here is stunning. Great thought and care has been put into this special place. Apart from flowers there are beautiful trees, fountains and lovely walkways. Although you are not allowed to picnic on the lawns there are picnic areas with wooden seating and also a small childrens play area.

Beautiful gardens and well worth a visit, we spent a pleasant hour just strolling around and also sitting to admire the gardens and take in all the lovely flower beds, a credit to all who tend them. Will also keep the children interested as lots of the beds are made to look like animals and insects etc. Do not miss... More

A sweet little park packed full of flowers and plants - lovely place for a little stroll but I wouldn't make a special journey for the park alone as it is very small.

A beautiful way to chill in this lovely town. A wide range of shrubs and plants and beautiful displays make this a great place to visit or to stop en route to or from Cherbourg.
