We accidently crossed the park and were invited to visit this great modern art painter exhibition. No figurative but impressive blues were used. We both liked the work a lot and invite others to join us.

Absolutely adorable park a little bit off center of city. Let's say 15 minutes walk from Cathedral Plaza, or closer distance from Place du Vigan approx. 10 minutes. The Rochegude Park has some magnificent specimens of trees and rare shrubs. Its gravelled paths lead you...More

A little oasis of calm with beautiful spring blossom and flowers, especially the purple poppies. Saw green woodpeckers for the first time in my life and lots of other birds too. Really lovely and no other people.

Great place to relax away from tourists and heat. Little park with some interesting features and trees. Pedestrian access past the theatre makes it a lot closer to town centre than it appears on the map.

You can walk for blocks without traffic or noise. Really lovely promenade. A few cafes and restaurants line the park Rochegude. Good for the rest. Local folks meeting points and they hang around there for coffee or drinking.

i must admit that our main reason for seeking out this park was to find a toilet". Once there, however, we were surprised and delighted by it. An oasis of calm in the middle of a busy town.

This park is charming. The planting is great as is the play area for children. It is surprising that such a lovely park is so close to the centre of town. Well worth a visit.

This is the only way I can find to reply to your e-mail re. Albi. I live close to Albi, and the picture you have labelled Park Rochegude is in fact the interior of the Cathédrale Sainte-Cécile. Your external shot of this magnificent cathedral is...More

The former owners of this fine town house (now closed, alas) were tree collectors, and the number of different trees they planted and which are now vast is phenomenal. It gives us a small shady park with constant surprises, from vast cedars to clumps of...More
