    I knew a few years ago the Park when it was paid, well maintained, for Easter there was eggs hidden in lush greenery, but today everything or almost is left a abandonment, there was an exotic greenhouse or spent through who is left giving abandoned to follow over a small bridge today half destroyed. I don't understand why everything is left as it now without maintenance, even ropes lining the path in the bamboo forest are torn and rotten. Very disappointed.

    A peaceful park but such a pity it is no longer tended and looked after carefully. The children's playground and picnic benches are great but I miss the flowers and plants which used to be looked after so well.

    Lovely and little frequented the day of my visit in August. It's a garden nor more or less with a few animals and games for children. Some mystery passages. The place gives the impression of having been abandoned but taken up again. Prefer can be spring.

    A nice surprise. We visited this place quite by chance and detours of the paths we went to discovery. Peaceful place. Pity that some parts are a bit neglected and meriteraient to be better maintained.

    This garden is of olfacties as the name. Shop more, almost no flowers. A park for children that's what it became. Very disappointed! I didn't go last year, but before there was a course arrow with a sense of visits and tons of flowers, scents. Nothing more!
