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.
