Garden dedicated to Charlotte Gainsbourg's father

Last month, Parisians witnessed the inauguration of the Jardin Serge Gainsbourg (Serge Gainsbourg Garden), set up in memory of the famous singer/songwriter/actor/artist who passed away in 1991.

The garden celebrated its offical opening above the Peripherique at the Porte des Lilas on 8 July. The Mayor, Charlotte Gainsbourg, her mother Jane Birkin, and other family members attended.

Previously, fans had paid homage to Serge Gainsbourg in the form of graffiti on the outside walls of his Parisian flat.
