Parks and gardens
- Le Jardin des plantes
These gardens, laden with history, were the city’s first botanical gardens. Today the park’s 4 hectares are laid out in an English-style garden dating from 1904-1905. Its footpath, waterfalls and statues give it a serene and romantic atmosphere, a perfect antidote to the bustle of the city. Things to see: a remarkable collection of ancient trees, the aviary and the small animal enclosure.
- Le Jardin du Mail
These gardens came into being around the 17th century, born of the « jeu du mail », a now obsolete French lawn game. The fountain, by Barbezat, and the large pond (1855) make up the central axis where the geometrically-arranged paths converge. The paths flaked by greenery, the flower beds and the exceptional floral displays in summer are worth a visit.
- Le Parc de l’Arboretum
Covering an area of nearly 7 hectares, the Parc de L’Arboretum consists of four public gardens dedicated to horticulture and the spontaneous flora indigenous to the Angers area. Combining the art of gardening with fine arts, the various landscapes incorporate a collection of bronze sculptures by the artist Francois Cacheux.
- Le Parc de Balzac
A perfect place to stroll along the banks of the Maine near the city centre, the designers of this park were inspired by the marshes of the Poitou region to compose a partial network of canals that have created a nature reserve of great ecological diversity.
