Jardin du Grand, Toulouse, France
Also known as the "Pink City," Toulouse is the fourth largest city in France. It is located on the banks of the River Garonne, 150 kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea, 230 km from the Atlantic Ocean and 680 km from Paris.
Jardin du Grand Rond (or Boulingrin) was created between 1752 and 1754 and originally used as a boules-playing area.
The garden was then modified, statues added, and alleys constructed. Today, it features a small bandstand where people practice dancing on a regular basis.
Grand-Rond is linked to Jardin des Plantes and Jardin Royal by footbridges.
