Not far from Paris, but already enough to be in the forest, Clamart is populated since prehistoric times, as evidenced by the engraved megalith found in its wood.
And it is precisely in this wood that we begin our day. And then that the city has installed sports equipmentLet's start by doing some exercise. We understand better why Xavier Maresq, Sports Director of the city of Clamart asked us to provide a tracksuit.
We are well in this wood, even though we are surprised by the unevenness it offers. We met an amazing neighborhood, the Parisian Gardens. It was originally a hut of fortune built to escape the flood of the Seine in 1910. This story and other is told by Florence Beaumont, Clamart Tourist Office.
Do you know this object? It is an anemometer, and it is not used to measure the anemones, besides the sea is far enough from Clamart. An anemometer measures wind speed and pressure. This is something very useful in aviation, and it turns out that Clamart has many stories related to the air. Gisèle Jullemier, President of the friends of Clamart tells us them.
Initiated by the Duchess of Galliera, Marquise de Ferrari who wished to offer the capital left by her late husband to good works, the Clamart Hospice, named Maison Ferrari since 1952 is probably the pension institution of which we would all like to benefit. In addition, its water tower, the first built of reinforced concrete, was retained by the Loto Heritage Foundation to receive an endowment. Marie-Dominique Chastel guides us in the discovery of this incredible place.
In the charming streets of Clamart, we pass the door of a florist. We are in the shop of Marie Paolini where Amélie Lecomte presents her flowers, including the rose pink floyd (did you know her?) and gives us some tips to compose a bouquet to take back to your half tonight. Finally you do what you want, we just give you an idea, there, like that …
The White House Park is a unique place in Clamart, and ultimately throughout the Ile-de-France. Because if it is a vast green space where it is good to walk or rest in the middle of trees, sculptures or aromatic herbs, what makes all its singularity is the presence of many animals. The city of Clamart also offers schools in the region educational activities to raise awareness of schoolchildren to biodiversity. It's very simple: François Le Got, deputy mayor delegate for culture, heritage, twinning and tourism, leaves his own hens on holiday with those of the Park.
And here we are as every day on the forecourt of the town hall of Clamart. And you are particularly numerous tonight to come to meet us. Of all generations, but especially a lot of children! They also give us a tip to smile on the pictures: forget the marmosets, cheese, sausages … what to say is: roast chicken.
