It was decided in December 2010 that the former École Polytechnique’s garden would be opened to the public. This engineering school was founded by Napoleon at the end of the 19th Century. The Ministry of Higher Education and Research has settled in the buildings now and for security reasons as well as research worker efficiency, the garden will be open only on weekends and bank holidays. This à la française garden is 6085 square meters (65,500 square feet/1.5 acres). It is composed of trees, alleys, statues and a large square pool. It is the ideal place to relax after a walk in the Latin Quarter. For further information, you can contact +33 8 3668 3112.
