Jardin D'acclimatation Paris

Jardin D'acclimatation Overview

The Jardin D’acclimatation is an amusement park that is located in the northern part of Bois de Boulogne in Paris. Emperor Napoléon III and his wife Empress Eugénie had dreamed of an amusement park after they visited the amusement park of Hyde Park which marked their presence in London. To see their dream come true Emperor Napoléon III hired a team of experienced and talented architects, planners, and designers to give this amusement park a shape. 

All the efforts of this amazingly talented team successfully created this 20 hectares of amusement and fun park which later on became one of the most important landmarks of Paris. Originally the Jardin D’acclimatation was a zoological park and the main aim of this area was to acclimatize the flora and fauna from all around the world and bring together various cultures. Today, the park takes pride in its 19th-century architecture and heritage and gives Parisians and tourists a joyful and fun experience.
