Peaceful place to walk around with plenty of seating available if a better weather day. Trees and shrubs to admire but not much colour this time of year.

Yes, go right to the end as though you're going into the Bishop's palace and there is an entrance on the left. It's also possible to enter via Avenue des Chartres, near the pedestrian crossing.
