Looking for something uncommon? How about visiting an enchanted garden with colorful butterflies dancing around you? What a dream vision, right? And yet, this magical stroll does exist. To enjoy it, head to the Bois de Vincennes and (re)discover the parc Floral.
This is one of the four sites creating the Jardin Botanique de Paris, in addition to the Parc de Bagatelle, the Arboretum de Paris and the serres d'Auteuil. The Parc Floral is one of these places making everyone reaches a consensus. Between Rosalie rides (aka four-wheeled bicycles), grass plots to relax on, 29 pavilions unveiling exotic themed gardens, the gorgeous playground area, and peacocks strutting all around, this is a place where families, friends, lovers and lonely souls meet.
And from May 15 to October 15, 2022, the “Le Jardin des Papillons” or “Butterfly Garden” is back! You are expected in pavilion 6 to enjoy a colorful universe where these winged creatures will fly all around you. In this secret 200sqm spot, discover about forty butterfly species leaving in Île-de-France. Observe the different steps of their cycles of life, from the emergence of chrysalids to their first fly, to mating parades.
This is also the occasion to discover the role of these insects over nature, as well as the evolution of their life conditions depending on cities, while raising awareness about their preservation. You get it, in addition to providing us with a magical place to discover on sunny days, the Jardin aux Papillons is a playful tour likely to please everyone!
