Gravelle Lake

This man-made lake was created by Haussmann to regulate water levels by controlling the River Marne. It serves as a reservoir for the two other lakes in the Bois de Vincennes (Daumesnil and Minimes), and the rivers running through it. Its water lilies add a peaceful charm to the lake.
