Unfortunately, this park is not well maintained , unlike EVERY other park in the city. Grass and weeds need care before summer. Amd the pavement steps are in dire need of repair or replacement. Sad to say so.

We decided to take this stroll within the River Seine, towards the lady, and we were not dissapointed. First of all, it was a totally parisien experience, since no tourists accompanied us, but many locals were there for jogging or with their dogs. It took...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National

famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
