Events i The Botanical Garden

Year around we offer guided tours and other events in The Botanical Garden. You can listen to music, attend theatrical performances or by food and plants at a market day. Several associations offer the opportunity to exercise in the garden: boules, tai chi, yoga.

During the summer, June – August, we offer guided tours of the garden all Saturday and Sunday at  2 pm. The tours begin at the Tropical Greenhouse.
