Overview

Parc de Beaulieu is a pretty public garden, located right opposite Parc des Cropettes. Belonging to the de Sellon family in the 18th century, the property changed hands many times before being bought by the city of Geneva in 1939. Also to be noted is Napolean's stay in May 1880 when he was preparing for the Italian Campaign. A large area is given over to growing plants both under glass and in the open earth. Other natural beauties are the magnificent cedars, the line of chestnuts leading to the house and the bushes trimmed in the conical French style.
