  • At the heart of the City Garden Lecoq is a haven of peace. The aisles are clear, large, clean, beds are well maintained. Location of Clermont summer and winter walk.

  • Very nice place and this is more so as traffic and the ability to sit on the lawn free in recent years. Hands that take advantage of games outdoors and rides, a beautiful body of water with its swans, great debts are species of trees and flowers special to make you break croutent and students who relax in green and a she and good brasserie with terrace. A place of greenery and breathing.

  • We went here twice on our weekend trip to Clermont-Ferrand. We were fortunate to have very good weather and very much enjoyed sitting on the grass for several hours.  more »

  • Excellent in summer but sad it's closing so early: *21:30 Summee *19:30 Winter though.
  • It is the best place for you to refresh,its a home away from home with its natural beauty,you won't get bored!
  • 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.
  • Lost of show and concerts in the summer
