A beautiful garden near the Mémorial de Caen museum. There's a large free parking lot nearby. A beautiful place to take a break and go for a walk. There's a restaurant nearby outside the gardens which I have reviewed separately.
Wonderful green area! And mostly I like the idea behind it's story. This place was desastrous and most of Caen's city trash was dumped and burned here from 1923 to 1973. It was gradually transformed into a wonderful scenery parc with several small animal and bird zoos. It is idealfor kids and families.
A beautiful park with lots of different gardens. Situated next to the Caen memorial, this is a beautiful location. There are parks with fountains, a beautiful rose garden, clean public washrooms and a play area for children. This is truly a hidden gem in the city
Great park, children loved the maze and mini golf, reasonably priced drinks at the restaurant. Had a really enjoyable afternoon exploring
What a fantastic Free park. Toilets and picnic tables all over the place. Great place for an afternoon.
