Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris

Jardin du Luxembourg

 

The Luxembourg Gardens is a private garden open to the public, located in the Sixth Arrondissement of Paris. Created from 1612 at the request of Marie de Medici, it has undergone a restoration led by the architect Jean-François-Thérèse Chalgrin under the First Empire

 

Luxembourg Gardens in Paris - Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris

Garden full of charm, called 'Luco' remains, despite its prestige and grandeur, a garden area. It was attended by successive generations of Parisians, carrying in their adult lives the memories of racing sailboats on the central pool, pony rides, drop-candy in small wooden green huts (there exists seven) or swings that seemed gigantic. This beautiful French garden is also a museum of outdoor sculpture and educational place where you can learn the secrets of the tree culture and beekeeping.

 

 

It covers 23 hectares (21 open to the public) filled by flower beds and sculptures. Appointment favorite of Parisians, students or walkers, it also attracts visitors from around the world.

I always think of standing by the gardens here , watching the children and the boats, during my time living in the 14th arr., long ago., and of the Ravel "Sonatine" in the background of my mind.
I was a piano student at the time.
