“Lovely quiet park both French and English...”
Review of Jardin Public

Reviewed September 3, 2018

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.

A bit limited because of its size, but still nice enough to go for a stroll. In the middle of the city, in front of the tram station. Not to compare with many gardens in Paris.

We passed the beautiful Jardin park when we were on the open top
Bus tour and decided to go back for a closer look. The tour commentary had said that some time ago the park had been re-landscaped to look more like an English park with expanses of grass and winding paths. It's a lovely public open space with lots of shaded areas under trees ( handy when the weather is hot) a couple of water areas with bridges and children's play grounds nearby. You certainly feel away from the busy city centre when in here. Certainly worth a visit.

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 de Verdun, we saw a (young) duck crossing the street. Apparently having done a field trip - LOL - it was heading back to Jardin Public. With heart in mouth, we watched cars stop to let the duck waddle across several lanes. It's now safely back in the watercourse.
