We went on a nice day with very little activity. The butterfly building is great, the flowers are beautiful and varied and the walking paths are very well maintained.

Nice gardens at the rear of the university. A little way out of Orleans but easily reachable via the tram. Just a word of warning with the trams: we tried to pay for our tickets at the tram stop...

This park is absolutely lovely. You can spend hours in there discovering all sorts of flowers and trees. There are several play grounds and a butterfly house. There’s also an area with animals (chicken, bunnies, alpacas, donkeys,…), a little train that goes around the park, Minigolf and you can rent little carts to cycle through the park yourself. During the winter months it is only open for a couple of hours in the afternoon. If you plan on going more than once it’s worth getting a annual pass.
Large and Vast floral parc, in winter season the entrance is free., but you can't see the butterflies. I went 2 times to be able to visit it all! Some animals such as Squirrel and Greater Flamingos can be spotted. And many birds! Great place to bring kids. You also can have a picnic here.
Excellent for kids. Lot of playground (sliders, swing, and other stuff...) And some animals. Nice for the parents too for a nice walk around and beautiful view. Plan 2-3 hous minimum if you go with kids.
Very nice and beautiful garden, with a lot of possibilities, even for kids. When you are in this area it's worth to make a stop here and enjoy the flowers and quiet atmosphere. Last but not least is the beautiful butterfly area a feast for the eyes.
Really nice place with many butterflies. Quiet and great to just hang over there.
