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
