Les meilleurs sites de SAKURA à Paris
The continuous good weather in Paris announces the arrival of spring, the capital takes on the color of spring.
It’s time to admire the Sakura, the cherry tree of Japon!
It is already the end of April, after the strict lockdown in the spring of last year, the flowering of the Sakura seems to have become the most expectant thing.
In all the parks of Paris, there are already a lot of Sakura in full bloom waiting for you to picnic and enjoy. Maybe you are as curious as we are, which parks are worth seeing?
Parc de sceaux
Le Parc de sceaux is located in the southern suburbs of Paris. It was built in 1677 and once the residence of the Duke of Maine (the son of Louis XIV).
It is a park with castles, gardens and canals. The area of the park is very large, and at the same time, it also has the largest Sakura forest in Paris.
Sakura’s flowering season here probably starts in mid-April and will last for 2-3 weeks.
Address: Allée d’Honneur, 92330 Sceaux
Jardin des plantes
Le Jardin des plantes is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. It was built in 1626 and it was once the “Royal Garden of Medicinal Plants” in the 17th century during the Louis XIII era.
It does not have a very large area (cuz it is located in the urban area), but collects many rare and exotic plants. So compared to a botanical garden, it looks more like an open-air museum.
Sakura’s flowering season here probably starts in early April and will last for 2-3 weeks.
Address: 57 Rue Cuvier, 75005 Paris
Jardins du Trocadéro
Les jardins du Trocadéro have a unique geographical location：face to the Eiffel Tower, which means that you can admire the Eiffel Tower and the Sakura at the same time.
For this reason, this park attracts many tourists. At this time of year, the whole park is already crowded.
The Sakura flowering season here probably begins in early April and will last for 2-3 weeks.
Address: Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, 75016 Paris
Square Jean XXIII
Le Square Jean XXIII was once a place which has so many tourists, but now it’s a little bit quieter than those places like the Eiffel Tower.
A small forest of Sakura blossoms stands on the banks of the Seine and Notre-Dame. Moreover, even after the wind and the rain, it still blooms today.
The Sakura flowering season here probably begins in early April and will last 2-3 weeks.
Address: 4 Parvis Notre-Dame, 75004 Paris
In addition to these 4 Sakura parks that we have recommended to you, I believe that you have already noticed that there are also many Sakura in the streets, they always reminding us of the arrival of spring.
May is coming, which also means the lockdown will end soon. A lot of people are ready to go out to catch up this spring, and you?
