  • beautiful garden in city center with lots of flowers. A lot of people stroll. I recommend this place, especially with children.

  • Lots of charm for this park in the center of clermont. It is also popular in the summer. Friends, couple, alone... we have always a good time and its layout can offer different types of at least busiest places. I love ask me from spring to autumn.

  • 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
