The Tuileries Garden embodies the soul of Paris with its lush vegetation, vibrant flowers, and exquisite statues. Children's play areas, little ponds, hedges, and shady trees contribute to the garden's picturesque surroundings. It also contains an open-air museum showing the sculptures of famous masters, including Auguste Rodin and Claude Monet.
Close to the Louvre Museum, a section of the Tuileries Garden was created in the French garden style. Drawing inspiration from Italian Renaissance gardens, the Grand Carré is symmetrical. Low hedges, ponds, and statues can all be seen in the former private gardens of Louis Philippe and Napoleon III.
This is covered in trees and crosses the Grande Allée, the road leading to Place de la Concorde square. More than 2000 trees make up the Grand Couvert, the garden's woodland area, which might be referred to as Paris's 'green lung.'
There are horseshoe ramps on the Octagon, an open space encircling the pond known as the Grand Basin; the terraces are excellent vantage points from which to see the Place de la Concorde.
Some of the most famous works of French art may be seen across the garden. Etienne Jules Ramey's statue 'Theseus and the Minotaur' is one impressive sculpture. The Greek myth of King Theseus facing off against a Minotaur is portrayed in this sculpture. A statue of Hercules by Giovanni Comino is an additional piece that merits consideration.
The Tuileries Garden's play spaces and activities have long contributed to its idyllic Parisian image. Most of these events occur on the Rue de Rivoli side of the garden, to the north.
A fleet of tiny boats with colorful sails is floating in the Grand Basin. Children can choose their favorite and use a stick to steer the boat through the water.
Evoke the child like the fantasy in the play area. Since it was built in 2015, this play area has become a favorite among young guests because of its slide, swings, and roundabouts.
The lovely rope bridge perched above a bed of blue flowers and nestled amid the woods. Children can ride the wonderfully colored carrousel as trees shade them.
The Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, the Champs-Élysées, the Place Vendôme, and the Palais Garnier are all situated at the Garden's four cardinal points. The Musée du Jeu de Paume, which presents contemporary art exhibitions, and the Musée de l'Orangerie, which houses Monet's Water Lilies, are both located in the park.
