A lovely garden with some amazing trees as well as plants, a little childrens train wends it's way around adding to it's charm. There is a museum which I didn't get to see, also a collonade to view..... more »
Jardin Massey is a great place to spend an hour or two in the sunshine. Lovely walks and immaculate gardens. more »
Massey Garden is a beautiful provincial public garden. It's a good spot for a run, or just a nice place to enjoy some greenery in the heart of the city. It feels very European to me.
Really nice Gardens. Play area and train ride for the kids. Nice cafe. Plenty of free parking round the edge.
