I wasn't quite sure whether this was an "off the beaten track" sort of tip or a things to do one, but given that this park is right beside the Musée d'art moderne et contemporain and the Hôpital Grave, so it is likely that visitors to Toulouse will be heading this way. The park is a beautiful place to spend a Sunday morning or have a bit of a picnic. In addition to the fact that it has a great view of the Garonne, there is also a pretty manicured garden with various different types of flowers (and sunflowers too) as well of various types of edible plants and ponds. My favourite part was the merry-go-round, which is done with machines from Leonardo da Vinci's drawings of inventions - oh if only I were a child again!

Address: Avenue Charles de Fitte
Directions: Between the Musée d'art moderne et contemporain and the Hôpital Grave
