PARC RIVIÈRE

Charming Bordeaux - - THE DISTRICTS OF BORDEAUX -

6

This 4 hectare park has been cul­ti­vated in the gar­dens of a for­mer bour­geois res­i­dence from the late 19th cen­tury. The un­der­growth spreads to the ru­ins of a château where there are two bee­hives. Since 2004, the Mai­son du jar­dinier that was built from the park’s for­mer sta­bles has been home to a gar­den­ing work­shop, a 75 m² green­house, a space for doc­u­men­ta­tion and a tea room. 226 boule­vard Al­bert 1er

7 BERNARD MAGREZ CUL­TURAL IN­STI­TUTE

Château Labot­tière is a mag­nif­i­cent 18th cen­tury set­ting for what has been an art cen­tre since 2011. Ev­ery year, the In­sti­tute draws on works of mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary art from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions to put on ex­hi­bi­tions that range in theme. The works are ar­ranged in an au­then­ti­cally pre­served neo­clas­si­cal en­vi­ron­ment: fire­place, li­brary, mu­sic room pan­el­ing and painted pan­els of the hall of Dutch paint­ings… The venue also hosts con­fer­ences and con­certs, which give it a true cul­tural dy­namic. 16 rue de Tivoli

In­au­gu­rated by pres­i­dent Sadi Carnot in 1888, this 28 hectare park is a listed ‘Re­mark­able Gar­den’. Its large path­ways lead strollers and jog­gers through a pro­tected his­tor­i­cal oak grove, along the ser­pen­tine river with a va­ri­ety of veg­e­ta­tion. Chil­dren will be de­lighted with the small parks and an­i­mal sanc­tu­ar­ies. Rue du Bocage
