A nice park covering a hill above Rhona river. There is a beautiful view of Pont d'Avignon, opposite Villeneuve-lès-Avignon and the river itself. Full-grown trees offer welcome shade on hot summer days.

So people visiting this "park" are not allowed to enter with dogs. Shame on you Avignon. I appreciate one cannot enter the Palais, but there is no other place to wait for your partner, group if with a dog if we cannot enter the park....More
Great spot to overlook and take potos of the palace, churches, Rhone River, and distant sights. Bring a zoom len camera & / or Binoculars.
From the river, hiking up to the Rocher des Doms is another way to the Pope Palace. The garden is a good break from all the historical places and experience the life of locals. The view atop is also excellent!.
We climbed the steps all the way from the river. Lovely views all the way up. This park gives breathtaking views of Avignon and the surrounding areas. The view of mount Ventoux is special. A nice change from the history and popes....
Others have said it all before me, but to add my little bit... if you have already been to the cathedral and climbed all those steps you already half way there. Very pretty and the wrap around View is outstanding. Very lovely. Great to do...More
This beautifully designed, inviting and surprise-filled park dazzled us with extraordinary vistas, charming niches and non-controversial statues for this American. In between visiting art and historic sites, this is a lovely respite.
Whether or not you like to look at gardens, or are simply seeing a bit of peace and quiet, these gardens are well worth a visit. They also provide the best viewpoint of the river and famous bridge down below.
The more you come UP on the way to the gardens, the more you find shade and freshness. Intimate spots and "belvederes" on the countryside around Avignon: everything, in those gardens, is surprising and after all delightful.
