Great Outdoors

The first trees of the Jardin Public were planted in 1749 and it is a popular meeting place and area of relaxation for the city. Used as an area for official ceremonies after the Revolution, the garden is now a beautiful English formal garden with many statues, bridges and an arboretum.

Stretching across 10 hectares, the garden is associated with the Museum of Natural History and also has many attractions for the kids - a playground, puupet theatre, swings and an historic carousel will keep them amused while you enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
