Jardin des Plantes

This public garden has abandoned its medicinal functions to become a popular family outing in Toulouse. It offers a breath of fresh air in the centre of the city and a large range of sights and activities such as playgrounds, ponds with swans and ducks, a small coffee place, pony rides, and beautiful bridges.

Do & See

Young, family-friendly, and with lots of cultural activities, Toulouse never gets boring. As France's fourth largest city, there is no shortage of things to see and do, and taking a leisurely stroll along the Garonne and Canal du Midi is an excellent way to spend the day. Boasting a rich history spanning over 2,000 years, Toulouse is a haven for architecture and museum enthusiasts. However, for the more adventurous traveller, there are also plenty of options. Rent a bike and embark on the scenic 40km journey from Toulouse to Port Lauragais on the south bank or venture out of the city to explore one of the region's stunning parks.
