The Pepiniere Park is a green area, but also a mini zoo (there are rabbits, monkeys and other animals). There is also a bandstand and a roundabout with wooden horses, and sculptures, including some by Rodin. After that you can go to visit Place Stanislas, after taking a little walk behind the park.
The Esplanade garden (9200 m2) is the site of the old moat of the citadel, which was filled in back in 1816. The original landscape style had to be completely overhauled in 1967, after the construction of the underground parking lot that it currently covers. The Esplanade opens onto the Moselle Valley and Mont St Quentin.
