At 29 rue de Babylone, you cannot see this hidden garden making you feel like you are walking in a building court. The Jardin Catherine Labouré is a former convent orchard covering 7,000sqm. Grass, playground, and fruit trees are now adorning this place open to all.
The Jardin Catherine Labouré has been named after a young religious girl said to have seen the Virgin in the 19th century, in the chapel by the garden, now called the Chapel of the Miraculous Medallion. This garden is a gift from the Filles de la Charité [Daughters of Charity] following a convention made in 1977.
It features beautiful verdant pitches, a small teaching vegetable garden enabling children from the neighboring schools to learn more about gardening. Vines, apple trees, and fruit trees just improve the setting.
The garden has been enabling access to the former Jardin du Potager of the former Hospice des Incurables (now Laennec hospital) since the 2000’s. The place enjoys many paths and pitches, and features cherry trees and other blossoming trees.
