Jardin Saint-Aignan
Hidden away at the end of a small cul-de-sac in the crowded Temple district, this park of almost 4000 m² is a true haven of peace. Opened in 2007, it was created by the City of Paris after the rehabilitation of Hôtel Saint-Aignan (a town house dating back to 1650), which became part of the Museum of the Art and History of Judaism (MAHJ). The City had acquired the building and its historic garden in 1962, and the adjoining land in 1970. Three distinct parts make up this large patch of greenery, this valuable breathing space. At garden entrance, at the end of Impasse Berthaud, there is a first plot of land landscaped in a contemporary style. Species of Japanese maple, hydrangeas and azaleas have been planted here, as well as a graft of the real chestnut tree of Anne Frank’s garden in Amsterdam. The central part of the garden is listed as a historic monument. This section is based on the plans of the former Hôtel Saint-Aignan garden. It is a traditional 17th century area, with greater emphasis on the mineral aspect than in the other two parts, and features a charming bower. Finally, at the end of the garden, there is the third section with fruit trees, lawns for visitors to sit or walk on, a playground and a communal garden made up of allotments cultivated by local people.
