On the Left Bank of the Seine, discover a space where technological innovation and nature live in perfect harmony. Designed to reflect the modern world by a group of celebrated architects (Alain Provost, Gilles Clément, Patrick Berger, Jean-Paul Viguier and François Jodry), the park opened in 1992 on the site of a group of former production factories belonging to André Citroën, the father of the French automobile.

Covering 14 hectares, its futurist aesthetic and geometric lines offer up a wide range of luxuriant green spaces. Visitors can savour a quiet stroll amongst exotic trees and rare plants or have fun with the family in the play areas, equipped with Ping-Pong tables, ball games and slides.

On the Ground, or in the Air

Make the most of the vast, accessible lawns by holding a spontaneous picnic, before setting off to explore the three main themed areas of the park (the Eugénie Djendi Garden, the Caroline Aigle Garden and the Grand Parc Central.)

Little ones will have fun with the 120 water games on offer, set beside two, monumental 15-metre-high greenhouses, which house an orangery and Mediterranean plants.

Thrill seekers might enjoy the balloon rides that soar 150 metres above the ground to offer a view over the park and an incredible panorama of Paris, the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.
