Parc André Citroën

Parc André Citroën is a 14 hectares public park located on the left bank of the river Seine in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. The park was built on the site of a former Citroën automobile manufacturing plant, and is named after company founder André Citroën.
This amazing park is part of the architectural complex. It hosts 2.5 thousand plants and about 7 thousand shrubs, and features over 30 fountains and greenhouse pavilions.
The white garden and black garden (of 1 and 2 hectares respectively) are detached from the main 11-hectare section of the park. The six serial gardens are each associated with a metal, a planet, a day of the week, a state of the water, and a sense: the blue garden, the green garden, the orange garden, the red garden, the silver garden, and the golden garden.
Since 1999, the park has been home to a tethered helium balloon, the Ballon Generali. It allows visitors to rise above the Parisian skyline, and is operated by the French company and manufacturer Aerophile SAS. The balloon is filled with 6,000 cubic metres of helium. It is 32 metres high and has a diameter of 22 metres.
The park is often visited and is famous for picnics held there.

    Sur ses 14 hectares de pelouses, 72 jets surgissent de manière aléatoire, transformant l’esplanade en douche géante !
