This is a nice urban park which frequently host various street festivals and activities. There is a good view of the lake and the mountains. If you are in Geneva, you really should come here at least once. At the same time, it isn't especially interesting or unique, so I wouldn't recommend coming here unless you are already in Geneva.
Lovely place to walk, do picnic, or just relax by the lake. All time favorite. But during the spring it is more special. It blooms with flowers and colorful trees. Enjoy the chirping of birds too. Have fun.
