This garden was created in 1990 in collaboration with a number of institutions that look after the blind or those with diminished eyesight (Fédération Suisse des aveugles et malvoyants, Association pour le bien des aveugles). This was done so as to adapt the garden in the best way for such visitors.

The composition of plants were selected on the basis of three criteria: their perfume, their tactile interest, and the liveliness of their colour. The marks on the ground indicate the presence of the labels. These are also written in Braille, and some provide an array of perfumes to smell.
