In 1938, a park was opened in Rennes’ north-eastern district specially for children, with beautiful rose beds, round boxwoods and pleached lime trees. A viewpoint, with concrete porticoes that reflect the geometric architecture of the 1930s, acts as a support for climbing rose bushes. Since 2002, this park has been home to a bronze bull sculpted by artist Louis Derbré. It also boasts Rennes’ only two umbrella pines.
