  • Site studied for a Sunday afternoon family :) When we think about the former discharge and we have a beautifully decorated Park, we can start from this park by saying that anything is possible!

  • What a change from the Hill to the birds where one can walk around, today, safe for children and browse maze, rose garden, animal park to end up playgrounds for children. Only downside the device nearby who can forget a little away. This is the place privileged and proximity of my small children the morning of the holiday.

  • Really a place cool to walk or spend the afternoon with the kids. Too bad that we can't take the dog but good if everyone comes with his dog it will become a hell so I have mixed feelings on the issue. Otherwise the course is not too difficult for the children at a young age and benefits are very fun for the kids!

  • 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!
