Green spaces are considered a luxury in most big cities, but tourists won’t have to worry about getting some fresh air while staying in or around Bordeaux and can enjoy many parks and gardens across town. Here is a list of ten of Bordeaux’s most stunning parks and gardens to visit while in town.

Jardin Public

Pay a visit to the Jardin Public, the most famous park in Bordeaux. Very close to the city center, it is the perfect place to organize a picnic, jog, or take a nap very close to the city. Those who don’t have time to prepare a picnic but still want to enjoy the view, go to l’Orangerie, the in-garden restaurant for breakfast or lunch while enjoying the spectacular view.

Parc Rivière

Built around a former castle whose ruins can still be seen, the Parc Rivière is not a famous parc. It is, however, a perfect place for a romantic get-away or some quiet time a little apart from the city’s main-touristic attractions. While there, make a halt to admire one of the perfectly-curated exhibitions of the Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez.

Refuge Périurbain, Bègles

Only a few minutes away from Bordeaux in Bègles, this parc will enchant people who love hiking. Great for families, there is also a large shopping mall, a recreational area for the kids, and the Pavillon Garonne restaurant is a real hidden gem for those who get hungry.

Parc aux Angéliques

Take a walk by the Quais des Queyries and be amazed by the stunning view over the Garonne. Only a few meters away stands Darwin, a very cool place to stop by for brunch, coffee, or admire the outdoor exhibitions.
