“Nice Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2012

This is a nice park in Lausanne. Pack a picnic, take a nice stroll, and live life like a local. When we lived in Lausanne it was a great place to run.

“Wrong time of year maybe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Interetsting plants, but nothing was at its best and lots and lots o weeding would be needed to tidy it up - The Swiss seem to be good at tidy ormally. Great views but for the plants go earlier in the year than October

“A nice walk but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

It's a pleasant walk but not recommended if you have a stroller. To reach the top of the hill where you can enjoy a nice view of the lake you gotta take several steps and it's not practical at all with a stroller. Overall it's a nice botanical garden to spend a visit.

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

It's not like a normal botanical garden as you've expect, meaning not to many flowers and floral ornaments, it's more like a park, with a spiral structure and when you get to the top, there is a nice view of the city. Nice place to spend some relaxing time

“Nice spot and free”
4 of 5 bubbles 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
