Festival of the Paris Garden 27-28th September

The annual Festival of Paris Gardens opens up the green spaces of Paris for two spectacular days. It features hundreds of free events in gardens throughout the French capital - from guided tours and walks to concerts and exhibitions.
Gardens that are usually closed to the public (such as the cloistered grounds of monasteries) also open during the festival. There is a special children's programme as well as tours for blind and deaf visitors. What's more, it's all free!

Among the many lovely gardens in Paris, particularly recommended are the Parc de la Villette, Jardins du Luxembourg, Jardins des Tuileries and Jardin des Plantes.

During the event, the area around Notre Dame is transformed into a Garden Festival Village, where visitors can meet landscape gardeners, environmentalists and the managers of the parks and gardens of the city. Advice flows freely and there are gardening workshops and demonstrations. The full programme is available from the Paris Tourist Office from September.

re: Festival of the Paris Garden 27-28th September

Can you please give me some more information on this for our group tours as we would like to offer this to our groups.

I need some more information such as the full programme, which gardens are involved and any information that would be useful.

Please can you send me this info asap.

Many thanks
