The jardin des plantes d'Angers is a municipal park and botanical garden located on Place Pierre Mendès France, Angers, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire, France. It is open daily without charge.The garden was first established in 1777 by Doctor Luthier de La Richerie, founder of the Société des Botanophiles, as an amateur's botanical garden in response to Anger's first such garden, maintained by the Faculty of Medicine circa 1740–1750. Its first location was on the Château Gontier and Bressigny roads, near today's rue Béclard, but that site proved too small and its rental too uncertain. Therefore in 1789 the society purchased the former property of the Benedictines of Saint Sergius at the bottom of the valley Saint-Samson, which forms today's this jardin des plantes

  • There is a lovely variety of plants, some of which I recognised and others which I suspect need France's warmer climate to thrive and so wouldn't do so well in England. I also liked the classical...

  • Stunning green oasis in the city with a nice water feature. Lots of trees provide shade on hot days. Benches and grassy areas an ideal place for a picnic or to just sit and connect with nature. A fair bit of birdlife too. Also some interesting signs identifying the trees in the garden.
