Lovely area just further up the hill from popes palace. Nice & peaceful with beautiful city views. There is a small cafe in the middle along with a small children's play area. Great place to go with a picnic & enjoy some shade

Quick walk from the Papals Palace, the park offers great views on St Benezet bridge, the Rhône, and Mt Ventoux.

It's well worth the climb to the viewpoints on the top of the rock - either the steps from near the free ferry or via the rather easier slopes above the Cathedral. Excellent views in all directions, including downwards over the famous bridge.

Fairly peaceful and somewhere to take kids in the city. Picnic tables and nice moon rises and sun sets.

The park had views only surpassed by the breezes on a hot July afternoon. Great for picture buffs. I guess it was good to be the pope!
