Jardin Cyprian Norwid in Paris
This is a more recent landscaped garden in Paris dedicated to a Polish poet who died nearby and has plenty of grass areas to relax and soak up the sun, but also a childrens playground, public toilet and fresh drinking water point.
About Jardin Cyprian Norwid
When the area was being redeveloped, it was decided that a new garden needed to be added, and the design was entrusted to the landscape architects Sylvie and Francis Farges from the Tournesol workshop.
It was inaugurated in 2006 with the name of Jardin Cyprian Norwid, who was a Polish poet that had come to Paris in 1854 and was friends of Frederic Chopin and Adam Mickiewicz. And the garden is very close to where he lived within a nursing home run by Polish nuns of the Sisters of Charity, which is where Cyprian Norwid lived from 1877 until he died in 1883.
There are three banks of garden area with numerous flowers and other plants, which make the area form a terrace style, and it has some straight paths with sloping lawns where you will often find students relaxing in the nice weather.
You will also find that there is a childrens playground here, plus there is a sculpture in the Jardin Cyprian Norwid, which was produced by Alekander Slima and represents an open book, with inscriptions on it that are taken from the romantic element of works Cyprian Norwid produced. Yet you can also find out more from the board produced by the Mayor of Paris, which is located on the railings next to the entrance gate.
