Just on the edge of the old Town, a lovely spot and plenty of shade to retreat to in the heat of the day. Really worth a visit.

I have visited these gardens every season the the year, and it is always a pleasure. It is not a municipal garden, but is run by the facility of medicine and biology, so don't expect it to be very pretty and trim, with children's play areas. You can not sit in the grass or picnic here, rightly so, it is... More

We had tried to visit the Jardin des Plantes twice before, only to have it closed, last year for no apparent reason. Anyway, we finally made it in. It is such a gorgeous setting in this dynamic city, with a great layout and paths, trees, and shade. The problem is that there are not very many plants of interest and... More

Really enjoyed walking around the gardens with our little one. It was very beautiful, plenty of benches to sit and watch the wildlife.

I think it is OK to get away from the city, but it is pretty small, no much to do or see. There should be an small play area for kids..

The gardens are super close to the old town and so so beautiful. They're free to wander around & we really loved exploring them. Would recommend to anyone visiting Montpellier.

We strolled through the gardens for over an hour and it was great to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. There are lots of hidden parts to explore. The gardens seem popular with the young and older people alike. We had a toddler with us who got really excited about the little pond full of snails and newts.
