Parc de Bercy

This park is divided into three parts: plant beds consisting of a vegetable garden; lawns and a romantic garden featuring a pond; and, the former house of the city's tax collector. The garden has preserved the original orthogonal outline of its roadways and some cobbled pathways once used to transport wines from the banks of the Seine.

Additional features of Parc de Bercy

You can still see the railway tracks that carried tankers cutting through the cobblestone alleys. The ruins of a mild 18th-century folly are lying amid the 200 centennial trees. Maison du Lac, another attraction here, stands on a lake-encircled island amid Corsican pine trees, Lebanese cedars, and maidenhairs. Three wine storerooms are still there today, scattered around the park, to bear witness to its history and embellish the flower-flanked alleys.
