  • The Lecoq garden is very well maintained and allows to take a breath of fresh air in the city centre.

  • Shame that whoever is in charge of updating the site, did not do his/her job. In winter time, the park doesn't close at 18:00 but at 21:00. Other than that, the park is not as maintained as it was 10 or 15 years ago but it still correct and certainly having WIFI is of a great plus.
  • Nice park ...well maintained. Great place to spend time and get some sun light.
  • Excellent in summer but sad it's closing so early: *21:30... *19:30 in winter though.
  • Lost of show and concerts in the summer
  • Nice park
