One of the prettiest parks in France

A beautiful park with flowing water through it and hundreds of fish. The park also contains the Temple of Diana and the Tour Magne.

Absolutely beautiful gardens. We have walked from Tour Magne down to the Temple of Diane which is part of the gardens. We were quite lucky that the weather was great. It is a great day out.

This was just a lovely place to walk around. The running water was so peaceful and the statues are interesting. Great place to visit and walk around, could be very romantic.

Great gardens with well laid out paths and display areas. Difficult access for disabled, but possible. The roman ruins (temple and tower) and fabulous and well incorporated into the design

Very close fom la Maison Carrée and les Arènes - worth to visit. The garden also has a Roman structure dating back to 25 BCE (Temple de Diane).

The gardens are on a hillside and as you walk up the hill the type of garden and vegetation changes. The park is very community oriented with lots of children and dog walkers. The Roman Tower is at the top of the park with the Temple of Diana at the bottom.

This garden's layout, walls, and water features date from early Roman times, and is a delight to walk in . . . climbing all the way up to the Tour Magne. We took our lunch and had a lovely afternoon.

In these gardens discover the original Roman spring. You must also see the temple of Diana and make a stop at the terrace of the restaurant to enjoy the view and the historical atmosphere. You must also go up to the Roman watch tower for a panoramical view on Nîmes. A pleasant time guaranteed !

Lovely garden with statues and fountains. After the flat area, head up for the paths up to the hill with old tower (La Tour Magne)for a great view over Nimes. Park was free of charge. There was a fee for the tower, but it is worth it.
