Beautifull Garden

Really nice to see, but do not eat at the restaurant of the parc, the food is not good and they even forgot my order. Got a free coke.

Pleasant botanic garden
Nov 2018 • Couples
The gardens are attractively laid out with quite a lot of information available in English. Not all that big but a pleasant place to visit on a nice day.

Mini Botanic Jardin- second division
Jun 2018 • Couples
Not very big, not world class but had its day (as per Lisbon etc), sorry to say,. Visit if you have an interest in plants and or like green space. You can push bikes round in it and the indigenous plants and hothouses are educational . More a park than a botanic garden. It is obviously on the scale of in Bot Gardens larger towns /citiies or have kept their tradtion. So not in Division 1 for bot gardens -like Copenhagen, Edinburgh, London etc. If I am truthful - we enjoyed a parc/jardin In Nantes more not even claiming to be a bot garden..

Worth a wander
Jun 2018 • Business
A giant sequoia is one of many highlights in this rather small but nevertheless lovely garden. The medicinal garden is a highlight.

Very nice green space
Apr 2018 • Solo
It was too early in the season to see the park it at its peak and it was therefore a bit sad. The greenhouse was closed, adding to the sad. It was a large, very nice green space in the middle of an urban/residential area. The many benches offered an opportunity to take a break. I would make it a destination in the summer, but otherwise would visit only if in the area.

A quiet respite
Sep 2017 • Friends
As we were walking around Caen we came across this peaceful retreat. We sat and relaxed and enjoyed the gardens for 40 minutes or so as a quiet break from sight seeing

A quiet walk through a little treasure
Sep 2017 • Couples
This beautiful set of gardens is a little out of the way up on the hill and is just a quiet, magical little refuge from the city bustle. Well worth the walk.

Such grandios trees!
Jun 2017 • Family
Very beautiful and peaceful. We loved the huge old trees, some were super tall and one spread out so much, that it was supported by overhead cables.

A Respite from Sight-seeing
May 2017 • Couples
The garden is well-maintained. There are benches on which one can rest. The flowers were not in full bloom when we visited.
