Right next to the hustle and bustle of Rue Royale lies a calm and a serene Park. It was the final resting place for Emma, Lady Hamilton who spent her final years in Calais. Although her tomb was badly destroyed during the shelling in WWII; a memorial for her was erected by American enthusiasts in 1990s. With palm trees, waterfalls, ponds and ducks, Park Richelieu is a beautiful place for a walk around or to simply to sit and relax. It also has a kids play area and an open theatre for enjoyment.

Parc Richelieu Reviews & Ratings
Nice place to enjoy your lunch break
Could easily have spent all day here, so impressive and beautifully kept. It was market day when we visited which was very interesting.
Park is breathtaking, serene environment and gorgeous whistling trees. The murky water produced such a melodic harmony that soothed every fiber in my body
Beautiful plants, interesting art and benches.
