  • The garden is beautiful and worth a visit, but it is unfortunate to see a seedy Zoo where the animals are parked in small enclosures and disturbed by the many visitors. We'd be fine with this zoo in our time.

  • Garden with flowers and animals very well maintained. We found room to Park easily (it was on weekdays). I think very nice with children because there are a lot of animals

  • Large park, a greenhouse of exotic plants that visit. Well maintained and landscaped gardens. Games for children from 3 to 12 years old. Many animals that have only too little room from where the 3 stars only

  • When one has seen Kew gardens, one can never be satisfied with any other botanical gardens but I suppose this one is OK for such a small town. Unfortunately at the time of visit (March) the greenhouses were closed. Entrance is free.
  • Beautiful garden with a café, petting zoo, many different animals, nice walkways, and an area for plants with medicinal use. It's nice and calming for a nice stroll where you can see plants from around the world and maps to tell you from where they are from. There are bridges too that you can use to cross a stream and observe the water. Many birds chirp. I try go there if I have time at the end of my lunch break from my research just across the street by the Hôpital Bretonneau. Similar to the botanical garden in Poitiers but I think a bit bigger and definitely with more animals. I hope you enjoy it!
  • Absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend!
  • This place is a great way to spend a few hours with a family. It has lots of pathways to walk, wide enough for a stroller. It has a fool petting zoo with pigs, a donkey, chickens and goats. there is a public restroom available, a small cafe with snacks, and plenty of benches. Entry is free. There is also an exhibit that has different microclimates like a rainforest and the desert. Plus, they have a pond where you can watch the ducks!
  • Beautiful pocket of nature in the middle of the city. It could be better kept
