The City of Paris acquired these gardens from a rich diamond merchant who had them landscaped according to his fancy. Of course, there was no traffic at the turn of the century. The area features a Japanese garden, a Vosge forest, a rock garden, a French-styled park, a small lake bordered with trees, and a beautiful English garden. The last weeks of spring are the best time for a visit.
