Culture-related activities

In some Greater Paris green spaces, you can combine a nature walk with a cultural outing

A walk through a Greater Paris garden can also be turned into cultural outing. Many green spaces display artworks, and sometimes there is even the home of a famous writer on the property. There are sculptures to admire in the gardens of the Musée Rodin (7th), the ‘Buren Columns’ in the Domaine du Palais-Royal (1st), the Fontaine Médicis in the Jardin du Luxembourg (6th), the Tour aux Figures sculpture by Jean Dubuffet in the Parc départemental de l'île Saint-Germain in Issy-les-Moulineaux, Chateaubriand’s home inside the Domaine départemental de la Vallée-aux-Loups, the monumental fresco by the Sismikazot graffiti artists and the luminous sculpture Noonight in the Parc départemental des Cormailles … Cultural walks are also organized in some parks, like the Impressionists’ trail in the Parc départemental de L'Île-Saint-Denis.
