Lovely setting, fantastic flora and fauna. Very peaceful with lots of secluded areas to sit and read, lots of seating in shade and sun and lovely scents drifting around too.

These gardens are quite small but just lovely. They are the municiple gardens of Coutances and are situated just a stone's throw from the cathedral and main square. Well worth a look. There is an interesting raised maze in the gardens and children just love running up to the top. There is usually some type of theme incorporated to the floral display and this is changed regularly. I visited the gardens with family last week and they have an 'artist and painting theme' displayed that uses giant size pencils, palettes, and picture frames. Entrance is free and there are clean toilets in the grounds.

Beautiful gardens in the centre of the town and this year there was a theme of children's stories within the gardens.

Nice for a quiet walk and to see how the French 'do' a public garden. It's free and within easy walking distance of the town centre.
