A 10 hectare park five minutes walk from the centre of the city. Dating back to the 18th century, the original garden was designed by the same architect as the Place de la Bourse. It was one of France’s first gardens to be built for the public. In 1856 it was landscaped as a romantic English garden. Full of beautiful old Magnolias, ponds with rare ducks, grass areas for reading and children’s play-areas with puppet shows. Whether it’s summer or winter the Public Gardens are the place to breathe oxygen and serenity within a city jungle.
