The Parc Jean-Jacques-Rousseau is a French landscape garden at Ermenonville, in the Département of Oise. It is named for the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who stayed there the last six weeks of his life. He died there in 1778 and was buried in an island in the park. The western part, called “le Désert” is managed by the Institut de France, and the northern part by a hotel/restaurant at the château in Ermenonville. The other parts are not open to the public, for various reasons.
