Peter Baudin commissioned this garden when he saw Dublin’s Japanese garden and decided that Toulouse needed its own. Still they put more effort into this particular Japanese garden than most. Its arranged around a lake, which symbolises a mirror and the island in its centre symbolises the paradise of Horai. In this manner every element of the garden like rocks, plants, and the landscape represents something or the other. There’re a tea pavilions, a bridge, lanterns, different sorts of bamboo, cherry blossom trees, colourful blooms, and a Zen (pebble) Garden – all classic and standard elements.
All combined, they make one of the prettiest and most tranquil getaways in town. It’s a terrific place to have lunch on a hot day..but will manage to look good in any weather. Heck, in the rain it’s downright romantic.

This is a garden within a garden. The Japanese Garden is absolutely wonderful. Even though it is not that big, all its features invite you to take a deep breath and relax while you enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding you. There is a small lake and plenty of green space to relax and enjoy a quiet, mindful moment. You shouldn't miss it while in Toulouse!
Peaceful and well maintained. Perfect for a peaceful walk with or without the kids. Interesting and informative information boards and lovely zen gardens. Enormous koi fish! Great to clear the mind!
Beautiful and serene. Many people out laying and taking naps at noon. Only downside is that you're apparently not allowed on the grass, despite that not being posted anywhere that I found.
Quite a pretty place to go relax and enjoy nature for a while. The pond has fish and it does give off quite a Japanese vibe to it.
I was quite surprised to see Japonais Pierre Baudis Garden. I think it is wonderful to see some changes in style after some sight-seeing in Toulouse. A lush of green and the park had a lot of people during nice weather. If you like nature, come here.
