12 green spaces in Paris La Défense have been awarded the EcoGarden label!
After the Jardin partagé des Reflets in 2020, eleven other green spaces of Paris La Défense have been awarded the EcoGarden label! This distinction rewards the efforts undertaken by the public establishment for its eco-responsible practices in the management of green spaces and to give back its place to plants in the urban environment.
From now on, not one but 12 green spaces on the territory have been awarded the EcoJardin label! That is 30% of all green spaces, and the equivalent of 5 soccer fields! The objective of this label? To promote the work of gardeners and to make users aware of sustainable development issues and eco-responsible practices.
In addition to the shared gardens (Reflets, Continents and Suspended) where activities are provided by plant experts to empower gardeners, the public establishment also participates in national events such as the Fête de la Nature. An event where landscape gardeners and naturalists walk the territory with curious and passionate people in order to share their knowledge of the fauna and flora.

Among the many green spaces of the district, the most emblematic have been distinguished by obtaining the label:
