“Lovely gardens”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

These are lovely gardens, the local people appear to eat lunch there. They are very interesting as it specializes in plants with medical uses.

“Oasis of peace and quiet”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Loved this place! Loved that it's so natural, not one of these fancy botanical gardens but really a keeper of natural environment. Free entrance too. Was told one couldn't picnic there, and so said the signs, so I had my lunch in the park at L'Arc de Triomphe, before heading there. But found out that down at the far end of the park, by the pond, some people did have their lunches anyways, in a discreet way, sitting down at the lawn.
Would have loved to join one of the guided tours but wasn't in time for that. So just wandered around aimlessly admiring the many plants and trees and the peace and the quiet offered in this location. Perfect place to wind down.

“Nice Park”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Hidden down away from the main town this park is lovely, has a great collection of plants and trees as well as a cactus greenhouse. Also great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main town

“a dream garden which gave me joy and happiness.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Walking through the Jardin de Plants i found a lot of emotions with myself. Moments of: stunning, amazing, romance, disbelieve, loving and seeing myself and my work.

This garden is a joy for all persons in the world....nature lovers, families with children, older people. business people and also when you are alone.
You can enjoy, find rest and learn a lot about nature.

I can't tell of there were costs, i forgot, but certainly it was every penny worthy.
i was there for more then 2 hours, but you can decide for yourself. The exit is very easy to find.

“This garden is adjacent to the musuem of medicine.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

It is fascinating and offers a glimpse into what it was like years ago. It is beautiful and quiet and a great place to find a bench and enjoy the scenery or read a book
