It was in 1782 that the first botanical garden of Grenoble was founded. It had been re-established in 1842 in an area bought by the city, located between the streets Haxo and Chanrion. Extending over 21 597 m²n the Jardin des Plantes is made of two distinct parts, separated by a small stream. Its Western part reminds of the structured organization and the geometrical alleys of a French Garden, whereas the Eastern part reminds of the romantic garden which was typical in the XVIIIth century. It presents some majestic species of centenarian trees and beautiful rockeries. A little further, we can find the rose garden, a botanic greenhouse of 300m² sheltering wonderful exotic plants and a Winter garden of 700m².
