  • When we know that the birds Hill is an artificial Hill, created with different from embankments of the construction of the Memorial and a few other nearby buildings, it said that ecological and smart recycling exists. Nice place to walk to aerate and ventilate the children.

  • I discovered this him through a colleague who told me it was pretty for is there moderation. Being at the hotel B & B right next door I could do my workout and discover the Park. Well maintained and I confirm that it is very nice. Is a great place for a family outing

  • Beautiful setting in this setting of greenery or activities are possible for young children (outdoor games, animals to see and touch). Ideal for a picnic and the discovery of the plants, in addition to an introduction to ecology.

  • 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!
