Abstract
The Tuileries Gardens were built in 1644 by the same designer who was responsible for the garden at Versailles. Although they underwent considerable architectural changes in the centuries to follow, the Tuileries Gardens became one of Paris's most popular recreational gathering places. By the 19th century, the gardens offered Parisians and tourists alike a peaceful setting featuring small bodies of water, public walkways, various terraces and pavilions, as well as numerous statues, all of which made the gardens the ideal setting for leisure activities. The Tuileries Gardens continue to attract visitors today, and are located adjacent to the Louvre in the first arrondissement.
