Conditions of the visit

The park and the botanical garden are accessible to people with reduced mobility.

Dogs are allowed on a leash.

Any collection of plants, flowers, seeds or cuttings is prohibited.


Plants that are not hardy or sensitive to winter humidity are placed under cover from October to April and are not visible during this time.

To see as many plants as possible, a visit between May and September is therefore recommended, although some plants, such as many bulbs, will be at their best at the beginning of the year.
