Jardin des Tuileries Apr 30, 2011
Jardin des Tuilleries extends from the Place de la Concorde to the Louvre, in central Paris.  It is a lovely garden packed with sculpture, nice fountains (currently under renovation) and cafes.  There are lovely lime green chairs to sit in, which you can even move around to stay in the sun or the shade depending on where you want to be.  Children sail boats in a pond, and another pond is full of gorgeous irises and flowers.  This is a great place to have a nice sit down after the Louvre, and to recharge your batteries.  It also seems to be very popular with joggers and people with dogs. 

The sculpture is mostly twentieth century or eighteenth century, and there is a nice contrast between the weird, dark bronze abstracts and the goddesses and lions in white marble.  There is a cheerfully plump nude woman, a thing that looks like a small animated orchestra, and some giant mushrooms, all surrounded by poppies and irises and the ubiquitous lovely green chairs.  The people watching is brilliant – the park seems to attract everyone from elegant ladies with terriers and a magical ability to avoid the sticky white mud after a shower to old men having showers in the drinking fountains.  And Bloke with a Camcorder, walking backwards to film Mrs Bloke talking to Small Child and tripping over a tree root. 

 Entrance to the gardens is free, and it is a lovely place

Tuileries flowers and scluptures Oct 11, 2010
Jardin des Tuileries was the first public garden in Paris. Designed in the 17th Century by royal gardener André Le Notre, the garden is an excellent place to relax after a visit to the Musée du Louvre. With some 18 plus sculptures and an abundance of flowers for visitors to see or simply sit and relax, and enjoy, I would recommend a visit the Jardin des Tuileries. My favorite statue is of course, The Standing Woman by Gaston Lachaise (1882 - 1935).

The Jardin du Carrousel that is now part of the Jardin des Tuileries is a terrific place to stop for brown-bag lunch.

A Relaxed Way to Spend Your Day in Paris Mar 23, 2010
After a long trip or an all night party one way to recharge yourself is to spend a relax day at this wonderful garden.

You can take the (subway) "Metro" to Tuileries.

I came here for the first time in 1979 but did not remember until my last trip 2008 when I went to the near by bookstore GALIGNANI looking for some English versions of my favorite International comics "Asterix" (found 3 copies I do not have).

This is where I use to go when I lived in France for 6 months working with my Uncle and this was a place I used to come to watch people play one of my favorite games...Petanque, quiet my mind, or sit by the gardens to have lunch.

You can walk around and take in the energy of the people or surroundings or relax by the fountain and read a book. There will almost always be some people having a friendly game of "Boules" and may even let you join them. From here you can see many Museums, Tour Eiffel, and do some shopping on Rue de Rivoli.

You will encounter the street hustlers but don't worry they are more entertaining than annoying. Just have a laugh with them. It adds to the moment!
