    An ideal park (weather) to relax. You can a round of walking, or sit on the grass. There are many different types of roses in the rose garden, when they are in bloom, it is nice to see. From the highest point in the park you have a nice view over the city. Access to the park is free. The park is situated a bit outside the Centre of Caen. Near the park is a (free) parking place available.

    The Park is very beautiful big enough with a children's play area which is fine but I're not liked very, because when we went to the farm on the way we saw a dead bird

    Hugely impressed with this park. Hadn't realised it's origins until I was reading about how the site was previously the council dump. Absolutely worth a visit with the kids. Many different things to see... including dipping your feet into the fountain to cool down. The views are great and the gardens are very well maintained.
