The Jardin des Plantes; a host of glorious roses
Perhaps you will recognise in the Jardin des Plantes du Mans the signature style of its creator, Jean-Charles Alphand, who in the 19th century also designed the Bois de Boulogne and the Monceau and Buttes-Chaumont parks in Paris. Created between 1867 and 1870, the Jardin des Plantes has a French garden with rows of linden trees, a terraced walk and well-manicured box shrubs, while the English garden is a place of winding paths and intimate groves. The highlight of the park is undoubtedly its rose garden, where a host of 1,200 roses create a colourful and fragrant floral spectacle.
A day at the Jardin des Plantes
The Jardin des Plantes is a beautiful place to go for a stroll. You can take your time and enjoy the sweetness of the air, admire the roses and watch the play of light on the large, tree-lined pond. Children can have fun in the playground and ride the traditional carousel, a much-loved Le Mans institution. The 19th century-inspired bandstand hosts numerous free concerts, so why not linger and enjoy some music in a glorious setting? The Jardin des Plantes is also close to the Cité Plantagenêt, the beautiful architectural and historical jewel of Le Mans.
