On today’s show Elyse tells us how long ago Toulouse was an overcrowded medieval city with dirt roads, no running water, no sanitation, and no public parks. Then a local visionary named Louis de Mondran fought the good fight to bring public parks to the city starting in the 1740s, and we still enjoy three wonderful adjacent parks at the center of Toulouse: the Boulingrin (or Grand Rond), the Jardin des Plantes, and the Jardin Royal.
