The Jardin d’Acclimatation welcomed 1.8 million visitors in 2014, a number comparable to attendance seen in the early 20th century, the halcyon age for the amusement park, unique in its genre at the time. The park’s current popularity reflects a rich program of events, major renovations and of course the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, located at the site.
The Jardin d’Acclimatation recorded 27 peak days with over 10,000 visitors in 2014, ending the year with record-breaking attendance of 1.8 million people. The unique Paris amusement park, which spans 19 hectares (47 acres), was created in 1860 to offer an enchanted space for outdoor leisure, sports and cultural activities. A century and a half later it remains faithful to its original vision.
The Jardin d’Acclimatation completed ambitious projects in 2014 including two new attractions, one of them a zip-line that crosses a large portion of the park. The highlight of the year was the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in the Jardin d’Acclimatation. Over 200,000 people continued on to enjoy the park after visiting the Foundation, which opened last October 27, including more than 50,000 during the inaugural weekend, featuring free entry.
“As the City of Paris prepares to renew the concession for the park in a few months, supporting our ambitious commitments to carrying on unique traditions while embracing modernity, these record attendance numbers underline the satisfaction of our visitors and their attachment to a park that remains unique in Europe,” said Marc-Antoine Jamet, President of the Jardin d’Acclimatation.
