Parc André-Citroën

Interesting
The closure of the Citroën factories in the 1970s led to the creation of this huge park, the largest green area to be established in the French capital since the Second Empire. Futuristic in design, it is a fusion of vegetation, stone, glass and ever-present water, where the highly symmetrical and design-influenced French tradition appears hand-in-hand with English concepts (greenhouses and a garden in movement) and Japanese traditions (serial gardens, a white garden and a black garden).

André-Citroën Park: a garden designed for Parisians

Although most well-known for its iconic tethered helium balloon that indicates the quality of Parisian air, André-Citroën Park is also well worth discovering for its daring juxtaposition of open spaces dotted with romantic gardens that invite the visitor to stroll around and admire this modern-day version of a French-style garden.
