A beautiful park and not too big so you can see all of it easily. Nice lake, ducks, geese and good spots for photo opportunities. Great atmosphere amongst the people. A highlight of our trip

It’s a pretty park with lots to see. Easy to walk with pretty paths and bridges. It cuts across from a residential neighborhood where our B&B was, and onto a Main Street to stroll into the heart of Bordeaux.

Built in 1756 as a classical French garden it was later changed to an English design which remains today. Very quiet and serene even in the middle of a bustling city. On a hot August day it was a great respite from the heat.

I walk through the Jardin Public at least once a week when I'm staying in Bordeaux. It's serene; well-kept; has benches and plenty of grassy areas to sit to read a paper, have a picnic, just be by yourself. Delightful recent experience: While on Cours...More
