An amazing way to walk through a great neighbourhood or take a moment for yourself. Having a picnic? This is a great spot. Located right on the Erdre, it has lovely spots. Great for everyone and handi accessible.

Very near the city center you can find this small island, interesting mini-museum inside. It's a nice place to also just sit back and relax in the nature.

I visited the park in a clidy day, however, this was so beatiful and quet, really worth visiting and just strolling lovely park areas, full of stunning plants. I was really impressed, though the park is not quite large.

This garden really looks like a Japanese one even with banzai trees. It is nice to walk trough the paths of this little garden on the island.
