Parc Emmanuel Liais, Cherbourg-Octeville

For a taste of the outdoors and breathtaking landscaping, head over to Parc Emmanuel Liais. Covering a generous area in the busy city, this garden boasts a large collection of unique and exotic plants. You can have fun identifying each species while enjoying the beauty at the same time. Meanwhile, in the greenhouses, over 400 species of plants are on display.

The park and greenhouses were created by Emmanuel Liais in 1885. Many of the tree species are from South America, Australia, and China, and the environment is set off by magnificent ancient groups of azaleas, both Japanese and mollis, to great effect.

  • A lovely botanical garden where also a museum of natural history "to old" totally cute. It was raining the day of our visit which was somewhat ruining the pleasure of the walk, but the place is very nice.

  • This Park is very nice. There are games for the children, who have been much appreciated. The greenhouse is very pretty. Only downside: the gardener who smokes in the greenhouse... It kinda ruins the framework and not great when you're with children.
