Bagatelle Park

Local name: Parc de Bagatelle

Bagatelle Park is located on the edge of the Bolognese Forest. It is famous primarily for its magnificent rosarium. Mainly modern rose varieties are bred here. The garden remains in bloom the most throughout June.

Bagatelle Park was owned by the brother of Louis XVI, Count Artois. In 1775 he bet with his sister-in-law Maria Antonina that he would build a summer palace in less than 90 days. The plant won, but the arrangement of the park lasted five years. It is a fashionable English garden at that time, looking like a natural grove, but with noble species of trees and shrubs. Winding alleys of sand and gravel stretch between them. Among the trees you can find an artificial grotto, a small waterfall or ruins looking like antique.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the then director of the gardens and city parks of Paris decided to set up a rosarium in Bagatelle. There are more than 1500 species of roses here. They grow on discounts, climb on pergolas or occupy small flower pots. They represent all available colors and patterns of petals. They bloom primarily in June, when the park is visited by the most tourists.
