  • Walk around the fountain gardens, is like visiting an open-air museum. You admire the architecture of the gardens with its many statues and you take a good breath of air. The bravest will climb at the top of the gardens to reach the Tour Magne.

  • Best green place in Nîmes with mix of wildness, historical, antique. Powerful place. You can chill or climb up. Very good for dogs or jogging. Temple, ruins, fountains, canal...amazing.
  • Maybe it was becase of the gloomy weather but this place seemed creepy. The statues were so badly attaked by damn pigeons! The surrounding nature is lovely though.
  • Best park in the area. Many things to see and do, great for kids and large. Different gardens, ruins, playgrounds, grass fields, merry-go-round, plateaus, swans/ducks/fish, a bar...
  • This garden is good for jogging. Ans it is also very tranquil for rest. On top of the garden there is a roman historic site, La tour magne, Magne Tower. Admission fee for the tower is 3.5 euro per person and free for under 7 children.
  • Beautiful park dating back to before the romans, water source. Great place to walk dog or hang out
