Inauguration of Allées Jean-Jaurès

Leave a comment

Although it was raining and cold, quite many people attended the inauguration of Allées Jean-Jaurès today. The avenue has gone through an amazing change: on this very spot were cars parked when I first visited Nîmes, and now it’s a beautifully designed and green park, where children can play and people relax!

I really wanted to see the architect, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, as I think he has done a great job here. And there he was, a man in his 60’s, giving a short and rather amusing speech after the mayor’s long explanations. And then it was time for the cocktails and snacks in the gardens.

Afternoon there would be bus tours, circus, falcons and other events, but I got so cold I thought I’ll skip it.

Anyway, if you’re coming to Nîmes, take a stroll at this avenue become a park. It’s really very nice.
