Park and garden


Claude Ponti

A permanent playground for children at the botanical garden, from the imagination of Claude Ponti

The Dépodépo is a backyard with a shed containing a gardener’s tools, “odds and ends” and empty flower pots. However, this backyard belongs to a giant, and children find themselves surrounded by much bigger objects than usual, where flower pots become shacks and gazebos. This play space offers a range of activities where a child’s curiosity and imagination can roam freely.
