Expedition to the Ruins of the Jardin d'Agronomie Tropicale
Saturday, April 9, 2011 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (CEST)
Join Adam of Invisible Paris for a visit to the ruins of a Victorian-era botanical garden in Paris.
The Jardin d'Agronomie Tropicale, a garden on the outer limits of the Parc de Vincennes was, the site of an experimental plant nursery and the curious colonial exhibition of 1907. Today it is a public garden, but ghostly traces of the past remain in its decaying structures and wild shrubbery.
Join Adam Roberts of the Invisible Paris blog - dedicated to "the parts of Paris that would be refused entry to the ville musée if they tried to get in today" - for an exploration of the garden's ghostly ruins. This is an opportunity to discover a little known park in Paris, and get a full insight into the strange past of the garden
