Situated in the 15th arrondissement, it’s one of the few public parks to have its own bees!
Yes bees; we love them (remember that we are harvesting our honey from the Eiffel Park Hôtel on 13th September).
If you like nature, Paris has plenty of it, and guided tours are given every week of the various parks and gardens. We’ve selected the parc Georges Brassens for you this week, not just because it’s one of Paris’ lesser-known parks, but also because they have beehives there that are used for educational purposes. We love bees! Did I mention that already?
This Sunday, 9th September, at 3pm there’s a free guided tour (hope your French is OK!) that you don’t even have to sign up for. Just turn up at the main entrance on rue des Morillons.
You’ll learn that the park contains vestiges left over from the slaughterhouse that used to be there. You’ll also be shown their mini-vineyard, the fragrance garden, the vegetable plot…
Here’s the map. Have a nice walk!
