Jardins magnifiques à voir absolument.La nature et toutes les différences d'espèces animales ou végétales sont superbes à voir. more »Wonderful must-see gardens. Nature and all the differences of animal or plant species are great to see.
The gardens were much more neglected this year than last. Access is now via some back entrance rather than the main entrance. Not sure what is happening here, I hope that the decline does not continue more »
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.
This is a hidden treasure!
A real pleasure to walk, the artistic structures change over the years which gives desire about getting back, relaxing and quiet if you enjoy ducks, go! They are beautiful 😁
Very nice place! Surprise this day here, because we go through a rather simple entry, to discover a natural grandeur that we could as to travel far, infinite!
