“Nice spot and free”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

We brought a picnic and had it on the grass, then walked around the gardens. There is a fountain and small pond on the grounds and some children were swimming, so the kids had a paddle. Lovely spot to spend a few hours and no charge. I don't know how impressed any major gardeners would be with the gardens themselves and they are not very wheelchair friendly, but as a park it works well

“Lovely and free!”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

The garden provides a lovely hike up to some wonderful views of the lake and town. It is free and was nearly empty on a hot Saturday afternoon.

“views, views, views”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

whilst this is not the most striking of botanical gardens, it is a perfectly pleasant walk up and down a grassy knoll, amongst the plants. it's also free, which considering the price of everything else in switzerland, will come as some respite! but the real joy is the view from the top. yes it's lake geneva and the alps again, but in the short time i was in lausanne, every time looking at that view was a treat.
