This is a nice little park to relax and chill. It is worth the detour if you are in downtown Lausanne. There is a nice view of Lausanne and the lake and the tribunal architecture is worth seeing.

There are many places to seat and admire the beautiful landscape, besides a parking lot. There is a Cafe in the Justice Palace, but the prices are too expensive.

A well kept swathe of green in front of the Palais de Justice, with a statue of national hero William Tell gazing out across Lake Geneva. Nice place for a peaceful walk in the evenings, with the lights of Evian twinkling out across the lake
