A pretty park. Look behind the long building that runs north to south in the center of the park...there's a whole nother world back there. There's also a lovely children's park on an island in the center of the lake.

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

Perfectly maintained and peaceful large public space. Plenty of shade and pleasant ponds with wide variety of water fowl. Very popular with locals but certainly not overcrowded. There's a neat play area for children at the centre. We planned to just eat our lunch there...More

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.
