Parc de Blossac, Poitiers

(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Originally constructed between 1753 and 1770 under the supervision of Count Blossac and designer Paul Spirit Mary Labourdonnaye, Parc de Blossac is divided into four segments. The oldest segment is the French garden, which was designed in the French style. In 1899, an English garden was added to the park, marked by its statues, ponds, bridges, and rustic kiosks. The park added a rock garden in the 1970s. A new contemporary garden, resembling a meadow, was constructed in 2002.

  • beautiful setting for ballads in the late afternoon. Very nice summer. We often go for a drink in the shade of the trees. A mini zoo to the delight of small and large

  • Green, family place to jog or have a walk. Great place to have a picnic in summer. Has an awsome view to river Clain.
  • Great classic park, great for walks, kids, to see some animals. A café is near the bandstand and you can also rent 4 wheel bikes...
  • Nicely taken care of park. Features a center fountain, two long corridors for running, one with a great view of the side of the city and a flat one leading to the fountain, a café, a small zoo, flat grassy pique nique areas, toilets and drinkable water. The city mayor jogs here too. Needs more sitting tables, though.
  • Wonderful environment, filled with animals. Amazing atmosphere.
  • Very beautiful alleys. Lovely garden and small park animals. Place green in the city center...
