“The entrance leads to a beautiful and well maintained free park. There are 2 available washrooms with drink fountains. There is plenty of parking as it previously was a zoo. They also opened a big walking parkour (less maintained, more nature-like) which you can easily take walks for an hour. We frequently encounter ducks, marmots, birds and squirrels. Lovely place to go!” – Rustic Sam
