Parks & gardens
Brest is an urban city, but it's also a green city where slow living has its place. All over the city, parks and gardens are waiting for you to relax, picnic, stroll, recharge your batteries or simply admire the scenery. Come and discover hundreds of local, exotic and, in some cases, extremely rare botanical species. Some of Brest's parks are even equipped with barbecues for get-togethers with friends!
Brest is extremely fortunate to be home to the garden of the Conservatoire Botanique National: a veritable tour of the world in 30 hectares! A visit to this garden is an absolute must in Brest. And don't miss the Jardin des Explorateurs, home to some rare and exotic plants.
