Parc de l'Arboretum, le jardin des collections

Interesting
This establishment dedicated to garden innovation lies to the southeast of the centre of Angers. An avenue of oaks leads to the house of its founder, botanist Gaston Allard (1838-1918). The 7 500m2 of grounds around the building are given over to annual and perennial plants, bulbs and shrubs. There are also contemporary sculptures and potted plants. Beyond, a little sensory garden is laid out around a rectangular pond with water lilies.
