This is an OK park but it isn't overly impressive. The gardens including the lawns and the enclosed botanical glazed offering are far from manicured and well kept - their OK and just that …. regrettably nothing fantastic ! The strolls around it were OK...More

This is a small park, the former house and garden of Monsieur Liais, a great collector of trees, plants, stones, animals (mostly stuffed, pinned or pickled), and statues from around the world. Subsequent curators have added their own collections. It is beautiful and atmospheric. I...More

The park is very small (you can walk it in 15 minutes), but not only is it very well designed but it's also very well maintained. There a big green house with lots of exotic plants and trees, fountains and small ponds. Very restful.

This little park is a bit off the beaten track, and the Cherbourg streets here are laid out at odd angles. However, once found it is quite intriguing, with room for children to play. It was a damp but sunny October day, wet underfoot and...More
