Parc de Bercy is a public park located along the right bank of the Seine in the 12th arrondissement of Paris on the site of a former wine depot. The area used to be an important location for Paris wine warehouses, and some remains of the industry can still be seen in the park.
The park is made up of three gardens designed between 1993 and 1997 as one of the major architectural projects of French President Francois Mitterrand. It is accessible by Bercy and Cour Saint-Émilion Métro stations, and by a foot bridge to the National Library of France on the other side of the river. With a combined area of 13.9 hectares, composed of three different gardens on different themes connected by foot bridges, it is the tenth largest park in the city. The "Romantic Garden" includes fishponds and dunes, the "Flowerbeds" is dedicated to plant life, and "The Meadows" is an area of open lawns shaded by tall trees.
Parc de Bercy features both an old historic landscape and an avant-garde approach. In the north-east of the park stands the Cinémathèque Française designed by Frank Gehry, and on the raised terraces are the 21 sculptures of Rachid Khimoune's "Children of the World" installation, created in 2001 to honour children's rights.

Great little park

This is a great way to spend a very different day in Paris. Away from the hordes carrying selfie sticks and marching through so many famous attractions, I hope more people do not take the Metro... read full review

This is a pretty little park that can be a nice stroll when the flowers are in bloom. Keep an eye out for the ducks. read full review

    Parc très agréable, surtout du coté de cour Saint-Emilion. Possibilité de faire d'y faire un footing sans soucis, ou d'autres sports (coté BOPB).

    Bucolique et agréable côté Bercy Village, plus urbain côté POPB. De la verdure ceci dit..

    Le parc est agréable à arpenter lors des jours ensoleillés mais gardez vous de vous aventurer dans les toilettes puliques de ce lieu ; vous y laisseriez tout espérance.

    l'herbe est dégueulasse. pour se poser et s'asseoir c'est juste l'horreur !
