Known as the lungs of the city - a great way to walk around the previous city walls. Unfortunately, a lot of drunks on th park benches - but they do not approach you or beg....usually asleep!

This is a well used trail ideal for a quick blast of restorative greenery between locations or as a circular-ish walk in itself, which I noticed lots of people doing when I went. It's good for gaining perspective on location of places around the area too.

This park is full of large trees and benches and encircles the old city. It is an oasis in the middle of the city. We had to walk through part of it to get to the old city. In places you can see the base of the wall that encircled the city, which was a treat.

Planty Park surrounds almost the whole downtown and is a really nice park to walk through when you are in need for a little bit of shade during hot summer.

Beautyful green environnement around the old city town. An oase to find rest in the hectic city and a great cool place with a lot of shadow on a hot summer day. Walk around and enjoy this green zone with a lot of typical buildings and places to relax.

Lovely park which circles the old city, we walked it on several occasions both during the day and into the late evening and always found it clean and peaceful. It is an ideal way to get around the city if you want a bit of peace and quiet between sights.

The Planty Park encircles the old town, occupying the space where the old city walls once stood, providing welcome relief from the hot sun and vibrancy of the main square, being peaceful, shady and beautifully kept. Although it isn't well lit, it's well used all day long and perfectly safe to cut thru at night en route to bus and... More

The park was made out of the old moat, and now has lots of benches, shade, gardens and artwork. It surrounds the entire old town area. What a gem. Sit and people watch, or just contemplate life.
