  • Quiet a garden where you can observe duck and Swan in a space of freedom. Space on several levels that make this great Park as it is.

  • Garden in the city with lots of memories of little girls, he kept its charm even if the sea lions are not there anymore ;-)

  • In the heart of downtown garden Lecoq is truly a certain disorientation, especially during the summer because it is very flowery and generally quite alive. Only some places are left somewhat adrift and it is a shame.

  • Great place to chill and have some fresh air
  • Best green space inside Clermont-Ferrand city center. Beautiful park, bring a picnic and blanket for a nap.
  • Very beautiful place. Just a perfect place to have a walk. Or just lie down and enjoy :)
