  • Called before its total redesign "Garden of the Halles", the 4.3 hectares completely open edit of the "Nelson Mandela Garden" were, after 5 years of work that will have cost 40 million euros, inaugurated on May 19, 2018 by Anne Hidalgo. The Nelson Mandela Garden occupies the outer part of the quadrangle of the slab overlooking the part of the Forum of The Halles commonly known as the "New Forum" and puts into perspective the Stock Exchange, which promises to be beautiful when its work of renovationwill will be completed and will host the Pinault Foundation for Contemporary Art, the Canopy of the Forum des Halles, and the magnificent Church of St. Eustatius.
