Colline aux Oiseaux park in Caen

Parks and gardens

Dedicated to peace, this 17ha (40 acre) floral park was created in 1994 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the D-Day Normandy landings. The challenge of turning a former municipal rubbish dump into a world of floral creativity has been triumphantly addressed. Although a relatively young garden, this is compensated for by the quality of some of the themed areas, including the rose garden where the many thousands of old and modern varieties reflect the scale of what has been achieved. The heather garden, gardens from around the world and the maze all offer walks full of surprises.
