The Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries) is a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris.
Created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution.
The Tuileries was the largest and most beautiful garden in Paris at the time. Catherine used it for lavish royal festivities honoring ambassadors from Queen Elizabeth I of England and the marriage of her daughter, Marguerite de Valois, to the future Henry IV.
It has been redesigned many times over the centuries, and in the 19th and 20th century, it was and now is the place where Parisians celebrated, met, promenaded, and relaxed.
