Pour information, le Jardin des Olfacties tel qu'il a pu exister par le passé, avec notamment un aspect botanique, est fermé (depuis 3 ans nous dit-on). Le lieu est désormais un jardin public en accès... more »For information, the garden of the Olfacties as it may have existed in the past, with notably a botanical aspect, is closed (since 3 years we are told). The place is now a public garden in free access, which is still maintained, but not at the same level as when the Park was a tourism place full.
Parc très agréable pour les grands et les petits. Je ne dirais qu'il mérite de faire de la route pour y aller mais par contre vaut tout à fait un détour si vous passez à proximité. more »Very nice Park for the young and old. I wouldn't say he deserves to make the road to get there but however quite worth a detour if you pass nearby.
Nous avons passé un excellent moment jardin bien arrangé bien entretenu.Nous avons beaucoup appréciés.Toilette au abord très mal entretenu! more »We had a great time well arranged garden. We have very much appreciated. The first very poorly maintained toilet!
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.
Daniel OgerYear after year it is deteriorating because it is poorly maintained. Free why not if you find ways to keep it in the State where it was known it a few years ago. And then more store? Yet it was nice to freshen up on the terrace. So big disappointment this year!
Antoine BilliauThis is a place to see: we let ourselves be lead by our senses and guide by smells. The concept is original, having a place where discovering odours, specific scents. But that we will not stop at that, it is also a feast for the eyes. Visit it takes about 1 h - 1 h 30 and finds himself entered by chance while in keeps the memory. Visit. The having visited over a year ago I would not express to me on its maintenance (others have done so), but as for me I found it well maintained and furnished with taste.
Marc gauciVery nice and especially... very olfactory... Downside: very few maintained... too bad. We would have gladly paid admission to see it get better...
Aurelie KusSimpa stroll in the shade but not very well-maintained Park dc not these things to see
