  • Very nice garden for this small village even in the fall. Games for children, pools, open-air theatre, beautiful Japanese Pavilion

  • 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 😁
