Dig It! Disneyland Paris gardens (5 February 2018)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS// General // Feb. 5, 2018

The pleasure garden, open to the public for entertainment and enjoyment, has a long and illustrious history. The Emperor Tiberius opened one to the Roman public in the first century, which stayed standing, despite being sacked by the Goths in the 4th century, for 600 years. More recently, the Vauxhall Pleasure gardens in London, were open from 1785 and boasted many marvels from hot air balloon ascents to a Turkish tent. I think the Disneyland Paris gardens are a direct continuation of this historical trend, and the Director Luc Behar Bannelier was able to tell me all about the wonders of the garden and how it was created.
