The place

This english-style garden was created in 1960 by the Baron Haussmann, and arranged by engineer Jean-Charles Alphand.

It has a triangular shape, lots of statues and children areas. Despite the few crossing streets, it's quite a nice relaxing place, mostly famous for its Puppet Theater (on wednesdays, saturdays and sundays - and everyday during school holidays - from 3.15pm to 4.15pm ; price is 2.50 euros).

Also available in the garden are pony and donkey rides (2.50 euros) and a carriage tour (2 euros), and of course the merry-go-round horses with one of the only two (the other one being at the Luxembourg Garden) remaining genuine "jeu de bagues" (a game where children have to hold metal sticks and try to catch rings as they go by on their horses) in Paris.

More info
  • Opening hours - Monday to friday : 10am-6pm - Saturday and sunday : 9am-5.30pm
  • Access to the Petite Ceinture - From de Montmorency or Beauséjour boulevards, close by, you'll have access to the former railway of the Petite-Ceinture. The promenade goes between Auteuil and de la Muette stations, and offers a nice walk in the green.
