  • A nice find quite by chance that this park! There is a whole incredible historical but also a very valuable community garden!

  • I live in the area for decades and I learned that very recently the existence of this garden. A little hard to find but worth it. First, it is little known, so infrequent despite its proximity to the bois de Vincennes. It is very green and well shaded. Its specificity is to host some vestiges of the colonial exhibitions of 1907 and 1937: pavilions and monuments dedicated to the various peoples of former colonies. Some flags are intact, others are very dilapidated and it is a shame. Various research centres are hosted in this garden. Clearings, stream, small body of water, beautiful trees, panels, all contribute to make this garden a great (and free) place to walk and rest.

  • This garden of 4.5 hectares, at the edge of the Bois de Vincennes continues to be the remarkable Conservatory in half wild nature, exceptional remains of the colonial era sometimes half covered by vegetation: tropical greenhouses, monuments, ancient buildings of the 1907 colonial exhibition... (Of the five villages that symbolized the colonies of the french Empire, Indochina, Madagascar, Congo, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco, there are only a few remnants often in disrepair). The Pavilion of Indochina was restored by the city of Paris and offers small temporary exhibitions. Flags of the Tunisia, the Morocco and Guyana, who served in offices or laboratories and were kept relatively and they still exist. Outside landscape qualities, the garden is a wonderful set of a buried memory that for both colonization, the development aid in the world wars. It contains a couple of remarkable monuments, real "factories" of exotic architecture and 6 memorials in honor of the colonial troops who served under the French flag.

  • Hidden little gem in the Bois de Vincennes. This garden was built a long time ago to celebrate France's colonial interests, and whilst a little run down now, it really is a moment of calm and tranquility. The whole of the Bois de Vincennes is great, but this really is a hidden extra special surprise!
  • A place difficult to find. It looks like an abandoned place. It makes you feel you become an explorer! The garden has a rich and eventful history (French colonies..) well explained by the information signs. The best is to discover it by yourself. (no restaurant, café, ou refreshments in the garden : bring your own stuff if you want to stay more than an hour)
  • It's like travelling to Asia in Paris! Wonderful experience!
  • Nice space but unfortunately, buildings are not maintained for most of them. Ditto for green spaces... too bad

  • The garden is not very large but has a charm with exotic pavilions drowned in the vegetation. See also in this park the urban agriculture association V' fertile island. A magic and unknown place.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
