It was a lovely garden with some awesome birds in the middle. It had a nice playground for our girls and some good views over Laval. It's the only reason to go to Laval as the rest of the city is lacklustre.

An excellent spot for all in the heart of the old town. Something here for everybody, play area and 'pets' corner for the kids as well as botanical garden for horticulturalists. A great place to just sit in the sun, read a book and contemplate.
