“Fascinating and unusual.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

We counted up and we believe that we have visited this park-garden probably ten times now over the last several years. We have taken numerous guests and all have been impressed by the visit. This is a garden-park operated within the auspices of the small town in which it lies. It is a an enterprise of genuine civic pride. Large, easily accessible car park close to the garden entrance.
As soon as you enter the park (payment required) you feel the peace and serenity of the place. An easy path of several hundred metres takes you to the gardens proper. These gardens then wrap and wend around an artificial lake so you see the splendour of the trees and shrubs from all angles, especially the incredible Jananese tree topiary.
A path takes you up the side of a small hill to the Japanese tea rooms, small nursery, gift shop and another developing garden.
All in all a very good afternoon or evening visit - and the gardens are still developing and extending!

“Magical night visit !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

We were in Oriental Parc for a night visit.
After 20 minutes queue we entered to the absolutely dark park (night visit) and everybody was given a chinese lantern and we start our walk through the garden. Nice relaxation music was ! Dark Oriental Parc and a lot of lights everywhere. Wow!!!
We were with kids and after some time (1.5-2 hrs) they was tired, but if we would alone we would like to seat there and do some meditation.
There were some short guided tour in french, but unfortunately we couldn't use it. But it was great without it.
If you will be around you have to had this experience !
