If you were to take a helicopter flight over these nine hectares of green space, located to the south of Lausanne railway station, you might summarily describe it as a vast grassy square (Place de Milan) with a steep mound (Montriond Hill).
It truly is a pocket world, with European beech woods, vegetable gardens, a panoramic terrace and the Lausanne University botanical gardens. Down peaceful pathways, intersected by stairways, you pass from the cool shade of the woods to the bright light of the western terraces, until finally you reach the summit, an esplanade offering unique views over the lake and the Savoy region.
«The Milan Park botanical garden is a small island of diversity in which to take refuge, far from shopping malls and the noise of the town. Simply listening to the sounds of frogs and bees feels like a regeneration.»
