A little oasis of calm with beautiful spring blossom and flowers, especially the purple poppies. Saw green woodpeckers for the first time in my life and lots of other birds too. Really lovely and no other people.

Great place to relax away from tourists and heat. Little park with some interesting features and trees. Pedestrian access past the theatre makes it a lot closer to town centre than it appears on the map.

You can walk for blocks without traffic or noise. Really lovely promenade. A few cafes and restaurants line the park Rochegude. Good for the rest. Local folks meeting points and they hang around there for coffee or drinking.

This park is charming. The planting is great as is the play area for children. It is surprising that such a lovely park is so close to the centre of town. Well worth a visit.

The former owners of this fine town house (now closed, alas) were tree collectors, and the number of different trees they planted and which are now vast is phenomenal. It gives us a small shady park with constant surprises, from vast cedars to clumps of...More

The park is a bit out of centre but within easy walking distance. It is an ideal place for a quiet stroll away from the tourists or a quick snack on a park bench. It has an interesting but modest collection of trees labelled in...More

A small but superb park -- formerly the garden of an aristocratic town house -- that houses the ancient owners' astonishing botanical collection of now-mature trees, and gives you the feeling of being much farther away from the town's bustle than you really are. Good...More
