A nice free park that is very lively most times of the year. It includes fountains, a running track, and a café. It's very centrally placed in Geneva. There's a museum across the the street from it and it's connected to the university of geneva. I think my favourite part of it is the giant chess. There's also the option to play table tennis.
Nice area for seeing flours a specialy Swiss flours and a great moment to spend time talking with your friend or family...there is also a zen japonies garden, little restaurant, and some other flours from other places
Beautiful park with giant chess boards. Its also the location of the reformation wall.Park is WiFi enabled.Its very near from Cirque tram station. The reformation wall is also within this park.
A beautiful place inside the park "des bastions" it's peak in beauty is definitely in early spring or in mid autumn.
I absolutely loved seeing the huge statues that were made so precisely accompanied with the stories of the individuals. Something that really made my evening there. However, you can still hear the traffic noise, which ruins the experience a bit.
Nice place and a really big park. Can get crowded on a sunny day, but can always find a place for yourself is very big. The location is very central, little bit walking from the shopping streets of Rue de Marche and Rue de Rhone.
Nice park. Next to university area. Usually it's peaceful. There is a mad man walking around and shouting out loud. Don't know what he's shouting, but seems angry.
A relaxed park that is well maintained with beautiful green areas and trees, perfect to enjoy picnic with someone special, exercise or simply sit back and breath in fresh air. There are also a couple of monuments and items of cultural interest such as the Reformation wall, Palais Eynard and a library. There is also a large open area with life sized chess and checkers pieces free for anyone willing to play. Besides the Reformation wall is a large skating rink that attracts a youthful crowd.
Love coming to this park with my LO. Peaceful and enjoyable! Love watching the young and old compete on the huge board games! Great for picnics too
Very tourist friendly! Free chess and checkers on offer! Loved it
What currently is known as Promenade des Bastions was originally the Geneva Botanical Gardens, founded by the botanist Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle (1778-1841). In 1904, the Botanical Gardens have been moved to its present location, the Console site (192 rue de Lausanne). The Promenade, though not the best of the parks in Geneva, is a popular site with students who flow out of the Geneva University building during breaks and lunch time, some strollers, tourists and hippie like 'visitors' who like to take a nap on the grass in summer. There is a restaurant in the park that serves food and drinks till late and is pleasant place to grab a drink or two on a hot summer evening. During winter, the area in front of the restaurant is turned into ice-skating rink (from late November till March, depending on weather). There is free wi-fi in the whole of the park area. In terms of plants there is an interesting surprise (opposite the Palais Eynard - Hotel Municipal) - a beautiful olive tree that was given by Greece to Geneva as a gift in 2004 to commemorate the Olympic Games. Overall, the promenade is worth visiting but if you love flowers and parks then the Botanical Gardens, the Park Eau-Vives and Park La Grange, as well as Park Bertrand are much better option.
Not easy find the entrance. The building is big,but not particularly nice. The exposition inside was quite boring
Decent stuff, if you want 10CHF ice cream that will make you feel more ripped off than satisfied
