Beautiful place that is perfectly manageable for short visits. Well-tended, with nooks and crannies to explore. Very green, clean and serene. Free entry.

Had a great morning here, and the best thing is it's free! Not far from United Nations building and the chair. If you like nice gardens and conservatories this is for you - the cafe is great too (unfortunately with Geneva prices).

Took visiting family from grandparents to babies for a visit for the first time in 20 years. Absolutely great, all free and very informative. Only had to pay for the merry go round but that's OK. Hugely recommended.

There were not many floral displays, considering the other wonderful floral displays throughout Geneva , this was very disappointing.
