jardin atlantique

With the Luxembourg Garden, Atlantique Garden and Montsouris Park, the Montparnasse quarter is teeming with green spaces that are ideal for a stroll.

Three green treasures at the heart of Montparnasse

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, the parks and gardens of Paris are an invitation for a pleasant stroll. The secret and unexpected Atlantique Garden is just above the railway lines of Montparnasse station. This French-style garden is inspired by the sea, with its waves of lawns and the blue colour of the children’s games. It is a vertical garden, first opened in 1994, and invisible from the outside. Near the Zadkine Museum and the Aiglon Hotel, the Luxembourg Garden, affectionately nicknamed “Luco” by the Parisians, is one of the French capital’s most famous parks. Created in 1612 by Marie de’ Medici, it covers more than 23 hectares, combining French- and English-style gardens. Here you can find the Medici fountain, statues, lawns and paths. Lastly, at the edge of the 14th arrondissement,  Montsouris Park is the most unusual of them all. Green and hilly, it was created in 1860 by the engineer Alphand.

Invitation to a stroll through green spaces

With its tall towers and Haussmannian buildings, the Montparnasse quarter also boasts a whole host of parks, gardens and squares giving Parisians and visitors a chance to relax on the grass or to picnic. The district has some twenty green spaces radiating out from Montparnasse cemetery. From traditional French- and English-style gardens to contemporary parks, these living, breathing spaces bring some gentle calm to the hubbub of the capital. Parisians love to take refuge there and treat themselves to a moment of relaxation.

 

A district of artists and writers in the 20th century, Montparnasse has take inspiration from the names of past and present artists in baptising its green spaces, including Yves Klein Square, Georges Brassens Park, Alberto Giacometti Square (an artist who stayed at the Aiglon Hotel several times) or Gaston Baty Square.
