The botanical gardens in Avranches are free to visit. They are well laid out and suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. There is a super viewing platform and plenty of seating.

Great place to walk or just sit. Panoramic views across the plain below to Mont St.Michel. Plenty of places to eat your sandwiches at lunch time. Lots of garden 'rooms' with different themes.

Another reviews note, they are well signposted and a really good location for views towards Mont Saint Michel. Noted many local buy lunch and take it to the gardens and we did the same ,visiting an excellent boulangerie just near the church.
