Jardin d’acclimatation would be a good enjoyment venue for all of us, as it not only offers a park where we can have a picnic, but also offers a lot of attractions for kids (train, small zoo etc).

Opened on 6 October 1860 by Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie, the Jardin d’Acclimatation de Paris or the Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation as it was first called was a Paris zoo. It was directed by Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, son of the naturalist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, until his death in 1861.

During the Siege of Paris (1870-1871), many of the animals in the zoo were cooked and served by chef Alexandre Étienne Choron.

From 1877 until 1912, the Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation was converted to “l’Acclimatation Anthropologique”. In mid-colonialism, the curiosity of Parisians was attracted to the customs and lifestyles of foreign peoples. Nubians, Bushmen, Zulus and many other African peoples were “exhibited” in a human zoo. The exhibitions were a huge success. The number of visitors to the Jardin doubled, reaching the million mark.[2][3]

A miniature road system for children operated by the Paris police was removed in 2008.

I request you all to please keep yourselves free for our MMF outing on the 10th May 2014 at 15H00.

Please come with some light snacks and soft drinks.

Best Regards,

Anupam BERI
