This is a diamond in the rough. It was a little bit difficult to find but once there you feel like you are miles from civilization. The place is absolutely stunning.

This was part of a bus tour and we arrived on a rainy day to do a walking tour of some rather ordinary public gardens. The highlight was getting out of the rain to have crepes.

Pleasant landsaped gardens near the marina area of Brest. There is a pleasant restaurant and a lake. Nice afternoon stroll.

The Greenhouses are only open June/July, but the gardens are pleasant to walk around, with plenty of seats available as you progress. Whilst there is a charge to visit the Greenhouses when they are open, the gardens are free.

Greenhouses are excellent , the park and surrounds beautiful. Hard to find if on foot though! The directions from the Bus stop are a disaster , walking up from Port Plaisance is a nicer and flatter option.

It is great so discover such wonderful plants in Brest. Take just one hour to visit the Conservatoire, you will see and learn a lot!

Interesting layout with some very pretty settings. I liked the idea of the water running the gardens but all seemed a similar with many plants like bamboo hardly native to the area. But you have to admire the hard work that has gone into this...More

A lovely garden filled with unusual plants. Well worth spending a few hours there, and walking down to the beach and back. You can also eat some crêpes along the way.

A real find. Extensive park and gardens. Well cared for and a nice restaurant as well. Not quite close to Kew Gardens as some claim but well worth spending a couple of hours here to relax.
