The mansion had a garden from the very beginning which, like the building itself, was altered down the centuries, even though the plot remained almost completely unchanged. The garden’s original design has not been found in the city’s archives. However, since the second owner, the Duc de Saint-Aignan, commissioned the architect Le Nôtre to redesign it, we have a good idea of what it was like at the end of the 17th century.

The key feature of this reconstitution will be the garden’s vegetation. There will be a screen of trees echoing the trellis enclosure at the back. This will complement the climbing vine on the walls surrounding the property’s historic boundaries. Lawns and a bed with trimmed shrubs will structure this new landscape.

Paths will lead walkers around the historic garden and then further on towards to the Berthaud (669m_) and Le Comte (1,090 m2) areas. These two spaces, conceived in harmony with the historic garden (2,220 m2) will have playground activities for infants.

The ensemble of these three areas, comprising a garden space of around 4,000 m2, will no doubt be an additional attraction for the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme

Mercredi 20 juin, Bertrand Delanoë, maire de Paris, et Pierre Aidenbaum, maire du 3e arrondissement, ont inauguré le « jardin Anne Frank ».

La décision de nommer le jardin public « jardin Anne Frank » permet de relier l’histoire du quartier et la vocation du musée abrité dans l'Hôtel de Saint-Aignan.
