Parc Oriental de Maulévrier

Local nameParc Oriental de Maulévrier
LocationMaulévrier, France

The Parc Oriental de Maulévrier is a Japanese garden located in Maulévrier, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire, France. It is open daily except Monday in the warmer months; an admission fee is charged.

The park was created between 1899-1913 on the grounds of Château Colbert by noted Parisian architect Alexandre Marcel, designer of the Cambodia pavilion at the Exposition Universelle, for the château's industrialist owner. Indeed, the park's Khmer elements are reproduced from molds from the exhibition. Having married the owner's daughter, Marcel often dwelt in the château as he oversaw its landscaping. After his death, she remained in residence until her own death in 1945, after which time the park fell into desolation for 40 years.
