Finding Some Shade: Luxembourg Gardens


Of all the gardens in Paris, we keep coming back to the Luxembourg Gardens for several reasons. There are so many shady spots. Great play areas for kids. Jogging areas. Music at the bandstand in the summer months. Tai Chi. Tennis. Boules. Grass areas where lounging is permitted. Luxembourg is the most democratic of parks where you can feel ‘chez soi’.

Carpeaux’s fountain of the four ‘continents’ represented by four women holding up the globe was considered at the time to be frivolous and risque.
