It's easy to find - just keep going up hill from the square in front of the Popes' Palace - but not much signing. If you didn't know it was there, or that there was something worth the extra climb on top, you would not know you had missed something good. It has ramps as an alternative to steps - useful for people with mobility problems, although one section was closed for maintenance when we were there. At the top is a very pleasant little park with children's play area, pond with ducks, a peripheral path with views across the city, the Rhone and surrounding countryside, including Mont Ventoux (of Tour de France fame) in the distance. There are some explanatory boards, a statue of an old guy clutching a handful of weeds - in fact Madder, used in the local dying industry and the centre piece is an artificial rocky cave which you can climb up the outside of, on steep steps, to the final viewpoint with location board. Well worth the effort.
