Parc Andre Citroen - 15th arrondissement - Paris

is very interesting,
with lots of different gardens,
fountains and balloon rides.

There are six serial gardens and they are associated with a metal, a planet, a day of the week, a state of water and as sense.

The blue garden: copper, Venus, Friday, rain, and the sense of smell,
The green garden: tin, Jupiter, Thursday, spring water, and the sense of hearing.
The orange garden: mercury (the metal), Mercury (the planet), Wednesday, creeks, and the sense of touch.
The red garden: iron, Mars, Tuesday, waterfalls, and the sense of taste.
The silver garden: silver, the Moon, Monday, rivers, and sight.
The golden garden: gold, the Sun, Sunday, evaporation, and the 6th sense.

The parc is situated on the site where
the Citroen factory stood from 1915
until 1970. When it was moved to the
outside of Paris.

Lots to see, definitely worth a visit!


  1. These gardens are beautiful Anne, yet another thing I have not seen! Yep, found the butterfly but doubt if I would have if you had not mentioned it:-) Diane

  2. I had to look hard, but I found le papillon (my favourite French word as it just rolls off the tongue!). Beautiful photos of a stunning location. :D
