The Public Garden of Cherbourg was created in 1887. Located at the foot of Roule Mountain, it has a total area of 1,7 hectares. Two corner houses were built on the grounds in 1889.
Zoological park, it contains a pond fed by a stream descending from the Roule Mountain, in which ducks, and a swan from Cascaroba, are raised. One can discover a basin containing thick-coated seals. Other animals are on display in the great aviary and enclosures.
In 1892, a bust of Jean-François Millet, decorated with ornamental figures, was placed in the garden. The portico of the Abbaye du Voeu, discovered in 1892, is also on view.
