The Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois du Boulogne in the middle of the French capital Paris is one of the oldest theme parks in France. It was opened in 1860 by Emperor Napoleon III. Back then it was a zoological garden focused on the research on the acclimatation of animals and plants to our weather conditions, hence its name. Today, the Jardin d’Acclimatation offers a beautiful garden, the Village aux Manèges, numerous playgrounds, various sports facilities, a puppet theatre, as well as animal enclosures. It is owned by the luxury goods company LVMH and operated by the French amusement park specialist Compagnie des Alpes.
