“Lovely, shady park...worth a stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

In the midst of baking Avignon, this park is a lovely oasis. So many trees and places to sit, plus a little pond (with lots of ducks) and great view and breeze too. It's well worth a visit for a different 'view' of Avignon.

“Don't miss the river views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

And near the grotto, the shady biergarten with the fountains, ducks, playing children, and cold drinks was wonderful on a sunny day, too!

“Garden in Avignon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This beautiful garden is very close to the Palais des Papes and is certainly worth seeing. There are several "view" spots that look out over the Rhone River.

“Welcome Gardens in a Cement Frying Pan of a City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

It is a pleasant up hill stroll that takes you from the hustle of the Papal Palace to a quiet green park above the city. A cool Breeze from the river below never felt so good!
The views are worth it and the gardens are delightful. Local sculpture celebrates local celebrities through the ages. Great side trip from the crowds.

“It's a bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Yes, it's cool that this is the bridge in the old song, and yes, you get cool views. But - you can get nice views from other areas in the city, and see the bridge as you drive past. If you are short on time, I don't think this is a must see.
