Superbe végétation, parc aéré et bien entretenu. Joli moment....seul ou accompagné. De la fraîcheur à 5mn du centre ville! more »Superb vegetation, airy and well-maintained park. Nice moment.... alone or accompanied. Freshness 5 minutes from the city centre!
Amazing park, with lots of animals. Better than some zoo's we've been to. A lot of peacocks, parrots, and wild ducks. There is a small train kids can take a ride on and also I believe ponies?!? Also, the park has some amazing plants all over, a small bamboo forest and enormous magnolia trees. Must visit for a evening walk.
Great park. Family friendly. The peacocks are to die for!
