Being from a green and wet place in the west of English, you get used to having the right to sit on a nice patch of grass on a sunny day, but sadly, when on the continent, the nice grass is usually roped off. Not...More

You can walk or take a tram to the gardens which are OK for a stroll away from the milling tourists. That said whilst it's very pleasant, complete with lake and ducks I wouldn't say it was particularly outstanding.

Bordeaux has very few green spaces, but here, they have done it up in spades. There is a river, a children's area with a carrousel, benches, a puppet theater, and more. On a Monday I was shocked to find the churches closed, so instead, I...More

Nice park located in city center, not more than 10 minutes walking distance from Monument aux Girondins. Very calm and quiet green park with a lake in the middle. Don't miss small ancien Jardin Botanique (Botanical Garden) with huge pumpkins etc. Of course, the plants...More

Bordeaux is becoming a very bike friendly, car fiendish place. Rent a bike or take a tour and be sure to stop in this lovely park!

a beautiful, relaxing place to stroll and enjoy part of Bordeaux like a native. It is dedicated to understanding plants and all are labeled. It was a perfect stop.
