112 rue de la Réunion - 75020 Paris
Père-Lachaise - Ménilmontant
This garden created in 1995, and with a surface area of 6,300 m², is devoted to wild flowers that used to flower in the capital when Paris was much more countrified. A pond in a sunny area, shady undergrowth and a flower meadow provide a delightful habitat for insects and passing birdlife.
So that the garden keep its original state, the Mairie de Paris decided to not have the plants watered or the grass mown. Here, Mother Nature is in charge of reseeding wildflowers and safeguarding animal life in this 6,300 m² area located just next to the Père-Lachaise cemetary. Because it is so beautifully preserved in its natural state, the garden is often used for educational workshops on biodiversity.
