Jardins ouverts en Île-de-France
For the 4th edition of the Jardins Ouverts festival, the Paris Region opens the doors to its horticultural heritage throughout the summer of 2020. It’s free and open to everyone.
While the Paris Region is often seen as a predominantly urban place, we tend to forget that nearly 78% of it is made up of natural spaces, forest and farm land, often little known by local residents. Why not take advantage of the fine weather and the summer holidays to (re)discover these gardens in July and August? Two months to fall under the spell of the diverse array of château gardens, allotments, shared gardens and school gardens waiting to be explored on your doorstep.
Discover the cultural heritage of the Paris Region and change your perspective on sometimes hidden treasures blending nature and culture: the potager du roi at Versailles, the gardens of the Musée Albert Kahn in Boulogne-Billancourt, Champs-sur-Marne, the Domaine de Dampierre, the Foujita home-studio, the Urban farm at Saint-Denis, the MAC VAL’s gardens at Vitry-sur-Seine, the Royaumont Abbey or the musée de Montmartre in Paris.
The perfect way to spend a leafy summer weekend.
Visits, talks, exhibitions, shows and tastings will be organised to offer a fun and different way to discover these green spaces.
