Geocache Description:


Le square Jean Cousin / Jean Cousin Square

Français :
Créé en 1880, ce jardin constitue un bel exemple de square typiquement XIXème siècle.

Les massifs et corbeilles figurant sur le plan originel sont abondamment fleuris et reçoivent, pour la seule période estivale, 15.000 plantes : tabac panaché, datura, lantana, héliotropes, en vogue à l’époque de la création du jardin, côtoient sans complexe, les couleurs vives des bégonias, sauges et autres plantes fleuries.

L’esprit d’origine du jardin est également respecté grâce à son parterre en mosaïculture, au pied de la statue de l’artiste sénonais Jean Cousin, qui date, elle aussi du XIXème s. Ce square, rénové graduellement dans ses plantations, recèle encore aujourd’hui bon nombre d’arbres datant de sa création : hêtre pourpre, arbre aux quarante écus, sophora pleureur…

Ouverture : tous les jours de 8 h à 20 h 30
Soyez vraiment discret, les jardiniers sont souvent présents sur le site.


English :

Created in 1880, this garden is a beautiful example of a typical 19th century square. Hedges and flower beds, found on the original plans, flower abundantly and receive 15,000 new plants during the summer season alone. Flowers in fashion when the square was created are mixed in with the vivid colours of begonias, sage and other flowering plants. The spirit of the original garden is respected thanks to the mosaic border at the foot of the statue of the Sens’s artist, Jean Cousin, which dates from the 19th century. Although the trees or plants are gradually replaced, there are still a good number of the original trees.


Open : every days, 8:00 AM - 8:30 PM
Be very discreet, gardeners are often present on the site.
