Paris, France

The Tuileries Garden is a 22 hectares (55 acres) garden, located between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France.

It was the first royal garden to be open to the public in 1667. The garden was designed by the French landscape architect André Le Nôtre (1613–1700), in the French garden style. It is home to a wide and varied array of plants, including more than thirty-five species of tree. Statues were installed in the early 18th century.

Since 1914 as a protected French National Historical Site, it has also been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1991 as part of the “Banks of the Seine” site.
