Although I didn't get the chance to see a play there, le Jardin Shakespeare
in the Bois de Boulogne combines an outdoor theater with a Shakespearean
theme garden.  Here's what an old copy of *Pariscope* says:
 
"Au coeur du Bois de Boulogne se trouve ce petit theatre de verdure dont
le parterre de gazon peut accueillir 300 spectateurs.  Autour de theatre
des tableaux vegetaux evoquent diverses oeuvres de Shakespeare."

From Luc Borot, in Montpellier, on Shakespearean Gardens.
 
A garden inspired by the flora of Shakespearean plays and producing amateur
productions exists in Paris, in the Bois de Boulogne, and can be visited
in Spring and Summer.  I have never visited the place myself, but I am
told it is a very pleasant place sponsored by Anglophiles of the Paris
high society.  Nothing to do with the other, unfortunately better known
activities of that Bois . . .
 
As soon as I have found the address of this Jardin Shakespeare, I will post
it.
 
Cheers!
