Reviewed November 17, 2012

a sweet little garden with lots of botanical "treats"...you can walk the shoreline of the lake, enjoying sculptures, parks, and the Corbusier house/museum.

“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

It is a very quiet place, nice to visit and read sitted on the lawn. Not one of the greatest Botanical Garden worldwide, but just nice and in a nice neighborhood, close to where I live.

“unfortunately domes closed though”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Beautiful gardens - amazing view of the city. Close to a bus stop. Flyers with maps and descriptions of plants in a box near the entrance. No entry fee to wander around the grounds. Lots of benches and shady places to sit and enjoy the view and snack.

“A very pretty place”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

A very interesting park and great for meandering. There's areas to sit and take a picnic too. Not overly homemade and very natural.
