A contemporary layout
This park stretches from the Seine’s banks to the Paris-Bercy Palais Omnisports and the Cour Saint-Emilion storerooms. It layout is categorically contemporary, but it has lost none of its distinctive bygone-day charm. It still captures the relentless bustle that permeated the storerooms whence Paris once bought its wine. Local parks and gardens authorities have befittingly planted a vineyard, which is harvested every year. 

More information and pictures (in French)

 

You can still see the railway tracks that carried tankers cutting through the cobblestone alleys. The ruins of a mild 18th-century folly are lying amid the 200 centennial trees.
Maison du Lac, another attraction here, stands on a lake-encircled island amid Corsican pine trees, Lebanese cedars, and maidenhairs.
Three wine storerooms are still there today, scattered around the park, to bear witness to its history and embellish the flower-flanked alleys.

Don’t miss

Maison du Lac, Maison du Jardinage, Chai de Bercy (a wine storeroom), the Orangerie, the flowerbeds, Grande Prairie, Jardin Romantique, Canyonaustrate (a fountain sculpture by Gérard Singer) and the film conferences.
