Chapter 2 tells the story of group of activists who successfully fought to transform a brownfield into a 27 million dollar, 4 hectare city park that was Paris’ first sustainable green space. The chapter argues that movement didn’t simply demand a park, but used the language of French gardens and nature to articulate a wide variety of urban and social ills. It also examines how the fortunes of mobilization of Paris’ emerging Socialist Mayor become intertwined.
