Paris plans to transform the famous Champs-Élysées into ‘extraordinary garden’

Arguably the most famous avenue in the world, the Champs-Élysées, is set for a green makeover following the 2024 Summer Olympics. The €250 million project will begin prior to the Olympics, transforming Place de la Concorde, before turning the 1.9km (1.2 mile) stretch of the Champs-Élysées into an ‘extraordinary garden’.
