Residential area, some of it private property, an oasis of green peace in the bustling Breda city heart, two entrances provide access to this hidden garden, which hosts a piece of the Jazz Festival at the start of summer. Recommended!

This garden is open to the public and there are sometimes music performances. You would not expect it in the middle of a street with normal houses and businesses, but it is there to enjoy. Peace and quiet.
