These gardens are at the end of Rue de Paris and have a range of tropical plants and trees. The pond with lilies and lotus was really beautiful. It attracts gorgeous birds too. The museum at the end of the garden is worth a visit too but not if you don't like stuffed animals!

This quite small place offers you a way to go back to the old ages, during the colonial times of Réunion island. And a georgian big building is at the end of the perspective view. Get in, it's now à museum of biology. It's cheap and easy to visit, on the firt floor, recent exhibitions and on the second floor, permanent collections of insects, butterflies or others animals from the Mascareignes islands. The garden is quiet, it's a nice place for children. Even if a lot of very old trees have been cut down, after one century, because they were seriously ill, you can find lot's of noticeable plants to admire. And have a sit on a bench or a snack here, it's quiet...Don't stay near the tree which stinks ...or you'll be surprised !

Very quite and zen place, a small garder with a peaceful atmosphere to relax
I’ve spent an entire afternoon under a palm tree, with a great book and I completely forgot the time

The gardens are lovely, tranquil and full of a variety of flora (including some really cool trees), but the best part of Jardin de l'Etat has to be the museum--an unexpected treat for sure.

Everything's written in French, but no worries for English-speakers/readers because just looking at the wide array of gems, animals, shells and more is worthwhile. The museum is free, the staff is friendly and considering how small it is, there's actually a lot on display.

You can park on the street for free right outside the gate to the gardens, so access is really easy.

I have strolled through the State Garden ever since I was a kid. It's full of the tallest and most ancient trees of Saint-Denis -except for the Banian on the waterfront. There used to be turtles a hundred-years old, and toddlers were allowed to sit on their back. The turtles have been sent off to Mauritius Island, after the zoo closed its gates not so long ago.
Now the Garden still has great trees worth the visit, and it has be rehabilitated according to the original architectural plans, including the perspective on the main street, "Rue de Paris", when standing in front of the Museum of natural history which is a small mansion standing in the park.
This is a nice place to sit and recover from the heat of the day. Families with children will love the amenities, the snack and the water games.

Strange that this could be considered a worthwhile attraction, unless maybe we missed some part of these gardens (?). Went there on a Sunday, some people picnicking, some moderately attractive alleys, a closed museum and some people parading for sport under the flag of a bank sponsor! ... let say diplomatically that it's not really worth the detour!

The lay-out of the garden is dull, at the verge of being ridiculous, it lacks information on the species and seems to be badly kept. Don't waste your time going there.

A couple of large pond and walkways leading to the Natural History Museum do not make for much of a 'jardin'. Sadly we found it hard to be impressed after reading the torist blurb.
