  • A walk to "Petrushka" who loves nature and flowers; October 2015, the place is quiet in the afternoon during the week we can walk, hand in hand, without risking to be recognized... Though? In any case a place very nice, free, discreet and infrequent finally! We'd like to go back

  • The site does not seek to hide it, on the contrary: these beautiful flowers that grow here, do it on artificial hills of old landfills. Now it's a very pleasant walk of families with farm and especially these beautiful roses. Great success.

  • walk, well maintained Park, children's playground, rose garden, breakfast and more: the animal park (cow, donkey, sheep, pig, goat)... In winter, very quiet, but the ride remains comfortable, and parking is free.

  • 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!

  • A green place, created from an old dump. A beautiful project that has succeeded.
