“A small thing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

As someone else said, worth a look. However I have to say it has an end of season feeling to it at the moment- lots of things going over, not much in flower or looking its best, and weeds all over the place. Can't help feeling it needs a bit more care.

“Nothing flash”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Seemed tired and unloved a bit. If I had had my gardening gloves with me I would have pulled out some of the weeds!

“Plants, views and playground.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

This is a great place to visit when the weather is good. Apart from the obvious - plants and trees, there are paths winding up to the top of the hill where you can relax and enjoy the views or play games on the grass. In the park below, there is a good playground for children, as well as an outdoor paddling pool and fountain.

“A charming garden next to the heart of Lausanne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

It is a place to observe the nature, and the breath taking view over the lake Geneva; changes can be observed from the chilly winter to the blossoming springs, a nice walk will bring you on top of the hill, and you will be enjoying many little paths to go down through the alpine garden and it's beautiful rock gardens. A lovely promenade indeed. Next to the hill you'll have access to the big Parc de Milan, with lots of distractions for kids.
