Jardin Botanique De Tours - Review

Termed as the city’s oldest public garden, the Jardin Botanique de Tours is a municipal botanical garden in the city of Tours. The major highlights of the garden are as follows:

  • Covers an area of 5 hectares.
  • Constructed in the year 1843 at the initiative taken by the pharmacist Jean-Anthyme Margueron with the help of money raised through public subscription.
  • Survived through many natural and man-made disasters over the years and has been remodeled quite a number of times.
  • Houses a bio-diverse collection of greenhouses, an orangery and an animal park. 
  • More than 2,000 species of medicinal and exotic plants arranged throughout the gardens that makes it a haven for students and botany enthusiasts.
  • The animal park that serves as a point of interest for both young and old people with its collection of wallabies, flamingoes, turtles, kangaroos and so on.

The garden also acts as a great place for relaxation, conducting small picnics and enjoying short breaks with two playgrounds having swings and sound games being open for children ranging between 4-12 years. The park has abundant benches for people to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

  • Unexpected oasis in a busy and very hot city. Visited early in the morning just before leaving for our next stop. Well kept gardens, plenty of shade, some animals. Free too, but parking can be a challenge.

  • A gem of a place and well worth seeking out as away from the centre to the west. A well maintained a fully stocked park with beautiful planting, carex for by an army of gardeners.there are many stunning and varied areas of differing habitat including a canal and large pond. Plenty of shaded areas and benches to enjoy lunch. Free to enter and plenty of grass that you can actally sit on to picnic. A little gem of a place and our favourite place in the whole of Tours. Unsure about the wallabys... they didnt look enthralled at being there, but a little farm with different species like emu flamingos and turtles etc. Lovely childrens areas too. Will definitely visit there again

  • Beautiful place to walk or to sit and read. A dedicated team of gardeners work hard to keep this garden perfect throughout the four seasons.

  • Something for everyone. Exotic plants and trees. Animals and birds. Well cared for

  • Lovely little park on the egde of Tours, we walk a little while but it's worth the visit as there are lovely plants and even animals. Little smaller than expected but completely free. Who would have thought you can watch flamingos in France.
