This is the third time we have visited the botanic gardens and it still delights and provides plenty to photograph. You can even get the little free shuttle electric bus there.

A very pretty garden, if you are in the area it is really worth seeing, it is very tinny and on a nice day a lovely quite place to sit and just enjoy nature.

A lovely peaceful oasis. Lots of different plants and flowers with paths going up and down, over a red bridge. Admission free.

We were very shocked that the garden was minute, certainly not good for the disabled and closed at luchtimes. Why the staff couldn't have staggered lunches to cater for the tourists, I don't know? Most of the plants were marked incorrectly or not even there....More

An easy walk from the center of Bayonne. Well laid out and very easy to get around, nice place to rest after downtown shopping district.
