  • A pleasure to stroll in the garden. It's very soothing. You can at the turn of the ride see the Magne Tower located on the heights and suddenly have a panorama of the city.

  • Very nice garden to see perfect maintenance. To spend a good afternoon beautiful Fountain. Points of view.

  • By the main entrance of the activities are offered for children: karts right pedals and riding ponies left (parents rent a pony ride and they are the ones that guide the animal get their child). After a beautiful esplanade of entry, the garden goes up regularly to achieve the Magne tower which you can visit. Everyone can find a corner to rest throughout the climb.

  • A well- curated and well spaced park. One side has a hill on it with maze-like paths winding through the hill while the rest of the park is quite open. Statues are dotted throughout the park. Overall this was one of my favorite parks in France. It's a must see if you're in Nimes.
  • Beautiful gardens with Roman ruins and artifacts. A main attraction of the city of Nîmes sorrounded with water and a fountain.
  • Beautiful Garden and it is free of charge. Can't go to Nîmes without seeing it.
  • Really nice gardens to walk through on the way to Tour Magne. Hilly and busy but still very quiet because of all the tree cover. Lots of Roman ruins to see in it too!
  • Nice gardens for a walk. It has quite a few sculptures. On the weekend, kids can ride poneys or bikes.
