Jardins de la Fontaine Reviews
we started atr the Tour Magne and walked down...lots of great views and there was an option of ramps if the step were too much more »
After following the canal along Quai de la Fontaine, I ended up at the iron and gold gates to these gardens. I spent about a half-hour strolling amidst the pools and admiring the numerous sculptures..... more »
Beautiful park that has its roots in Roman times although much of it has been rebuilt since then. There are streams and statues. Access to an ancient Roman temple (Diana). For kids you can even do a pony ride at a reasonable cost. When in Nîmes this is a place you should visit. It is within walking distance of other major sites.
Popular central park with water, statuary and views. Worth the walk to the top to visit Magne Tower which you can climb for €6. At the lower end of the garden is the temple of Diana which is free. Only toilets are in cafe near the temple but cafe is excellent.
