Fairly big and well kept park with a large lake that attracts lots of birdlife, including swans. Really nice to have a relaxing walk away from the historic centre and tourists.

This is a good place for a stroll or to take a packed lunch or picnic and watch theomnipresent joggers. If you're here it's worth heading across to the Cite Universitaire to see Le Corbusier's Swiss Pavillion and Maison du Bresil which are close by.

adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
