A little boy on Luxembourg Gardens’ playground, watching a basketball game but being a part of it as soon as possible….
The garden is largely devoted to a green parterre of gravel and lawn populated with statues and provided with large basins of water where children sail model boats. The garden is famed for its calm atmosphere. Surrounding the pond are a series of statues of former French queens. In the southwest corner, there is an orchard of apple and pear trees and the théâtre des marionnettes (puppet theatre).The gardens include a large fenced-in playground for young children and their parents and a vintage carousel. In addition, free musical performances are presented in a gazebo on the grounds and there is a small cafe restaurant nearby, under the trees, with both indoor and outdoor seating from which many people enjoy the music over a glass of wine.
