  • 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.

  • We had a great time well arranged garden. We have very much appreciated. The first very poorly maintained toilet!

  • We went here well out of season in October but had a very pleasant hour wandering around. There was still lots to see and photograph but I would imagine it would be breathtaking in the summer.  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.
  • Year 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!

  • This 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.
