Plenty of people visit this garden. Locals and school children as well as tourists. Museum at the back is another attraction. Big fish in the pond and and assortment of mature trees and palms give shade as you wander around.

A couple of large pond and walkways leading to the Natural History Museum do not make for much of a 'jardin'. Sadly we found it hard to be impressed after reading the torist blurb.

you need to go through it to access the museum d'histoire naturelle, so you look a bit around...but there is not so much to see, apart some big trees
