  • I recommend during sunny days. I went there in the spring, unfortunately I made around the Park quickly, flowers & plants being not yet pushed for the most part. A family!

  • Great discovery near the famous memorial. On this old garbage dump, a beautiful park has been done. Sublime plantations and many different gardens are well maintained. There are many benches to relax in this place full of greenery in the city.

  • A former garbage dump was transformed into birds Hill, a green place where the whole family savour a good walk in the middle of the flowers and fountains. Games tunes and a small farm are present in the Hill for children. The animals of the Park are sometimes released around the ponds (swans) so pay attention to your calves! Small gardens have themes and a small bar with a mini-golf (extra charge) are at the foot of the Hill. Very pleasant walk in the summer!

  • A place that has lost, both at the level of its attractive side, than on the side of the cleaning, the flowers are less maintained than before. Animals have less happy (no water, no food, small enclosure). Disappointed in this place, rest the beautiful sight of caen in height that she won't change!

  • This Park is great for walking, relax and even have a picnic with friends. My only disappointment was learning the origin of his name "Bird Hill". 4 stars.

  • Nice for a ride even in family. Uncovered spaces, the rose garden and its point of water, the labyrinth that even children can do and l area with games for children up to 10 years. For the addicted to pokemon GB of many pokestops all the birds Hill course. Discover!
