Eventhough there are busy streets from two sides of this canal, you can still get a relaxing moment with stunnig view of trees, little bridges and water. Worth to visit any time!

Trees, paths on both sides, this is a gorgeous walking and cycling area. Connects up with the old brick circular port that links the Canal du Midi with the Canal de Garonne.

A very mild 17 degrees with blue sky and sunshine ensured a pleasant stroll along the leafy canal. Lots of joggers passed me by, plenty of locals also enjoying the calm, tranquil scene. Enough seating on either side of the towpath to contemplate. Dogs catered...More

You can either walk, bike or run along the canal. A great path to get to the center and avoid roads. Always green with lot of trees. A must see also when visiting Toulouse. Very pretty canal and a pleasant walk.

After a stimulating three-day conference filled with talk, the quiet canal paths are perfect for winding down. I entered at the Gare Matabiau, and walked the just-right length to where it meets the Canal du Midi, which is wider and less shady. There are exit...More

The canal is short and not that pleasant to reach or walk next to. It has relatively few steps to access it- you can find yourself walking next to it for sometime with no easy way back to the streets!
