Earlier we learned about Le Jardin Du Luxembourg;  a Top Parisian Park.

As we make our way into summer, you’ll want to spend more and more time outdoors on your next Parisian vacation.  We here at New York Habitat are going to be highlighting some of the great outdoor parks and gardens in Paris so that you’ll already have some places in mind before you go.  These spots are all great for strolling, picnicking, or just sitting and people-watching, a favorite pastime of Parisians!

This week, we’ll be looking at le Jardin des Tuileries.  Located in the 1st arrondissement, this park is actually located at the western edge of one of Paris’s most visited sites: le Louvre!  The garden used to be bound within the Tuileries Palace, which was part of the larger structure that we know as le Louvre, but the western side was destroyed in the late nineteenth century.  The garden area itself was first designed in the seventeenth century by the renowned French landscape architect, André Le Notre.  Evidence of his work can still be seen in the alleyways that run throughout the garden.  Le Jardin des Tuileries is a wonderful place to sit and relax, especially by the large fountains in the park, after a long day at le Louvre, but it also contains two small museums itself, including le Musée de l’Orangerie, which contains Monet’s famous waterlillies.
