  • Ideal to go for a walk. Beautiful place especially in the spring/summer with the flowers. Small animal park very appreciable (goats, donkey, cow, hens, pigs...)

  • What can I say that has not already been said, recited, repeated a thousand times? This small park is home to the endemic species of Normandy, such as the cow or the ducks. So you can walk there with friends, or, if you don't have one, as a family (or alone), to spend a moment that will delight young and old. Located in a very dull area, this place is a real breath of fresh air that offers to your view gardens, small stretches of water, animals, and if it is your delirium, a mini-golf (which must be paid, of course). Given the price of entry to the Park (0 euros), the value for money is excellent. Beware however: since it is in Normandy, it is better to go there in the end of spring or during the summer, otherwise we freeze the loaf.

  • beautiful Green Park in the middle of town, ideal for walking and visiting animals. a tip: go all year round but especially in the spring when the gardeners have replanted everything. a nice refreshing ballad.

  • A very pleasant experience here . A lovely place to discover .
  • A beautiful garden near the Mémorial de Caen museum. There's a large free parking lot nearby. A beautiful place to take a break and go for a walk. There's a restaurant nearby outside the gardens which I have reviewed separately.
  • Wonderful green area! And mostly I like the idea behind it's story. This place was desastrous and most of Caen's city trash was dumped and burned here from 1923 to 1973. It was gradually transformed into a wonderful scenery parc with several small animal and bird zoos. It is idealfor kids and families.
  • A beautiful park with lots of different gardens. Situated next to the Caen memorial, this is a beautiful location. There are parks with fountains, a beautiful rose garden, clean public washrooms and a play area for children. This is truly a hidden gem in the city
  • Great park, children loved the maze and mini golf, reasonably priced drinks at the restaurant. Had a really enjoyable afternoon exploring
