“Pretty little park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I used to live in Tours and remember this park well. It's basic layout is very akin to a large English garden with a large lake and grassed areas with a mini play park. It's a lovely peaceful place to go on a Sunday morning for a little walk or to just chill out whenever and kick back. Tours has an abudance of parks and whilst this is one of the smallest and most basic, it's still worht checking out.

“Pretty Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

This is a lovely park in the centre of Tours. Worth a visit to see the Giant Sequoia trees. They aren't as big as the Redwoods in California but they are impressive nonetheless.

“Charming local garden in downtown Tours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

One of the benefits of living in France is to take advantage of the many gardens available within the cities, especially for the enjoyment of the city dwellers. The Jardins des Prebendes is a great local garden in the center of Tours. There are playgrounds for the children and although not close to the commercial areas, it is a short walk to the garden. One highlight is that the garden is located in an older residential areas of the city and surrounded with many beautiful houses which were not destroyed in the war and the US bombing of the city. Great area to take a break during a day of sightseeing.

“Beautiful jardin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Lovely garden with a playground which is one of the most impossible thing to find in Tours city centre. Perfect spot for a little rest or to read a perfect book. Ducks are known as the permanent residents there. They are the cutest.
