  • Within the Garden of Explorers we visit the garden of Marco Polo, located on Avenida del Observatorio, a beautiful park with large expanses of grass, plants, benches to sit and all in the middle of fabulous sculptures. The most protruding part of the park is the Fountain of the 4 parts of the World, which is a bronze fountain representing the 4 continents (with female figures) under a celestial sphere with turtles, dolphins and horses that throw water.

  • It's amazing, but when I was on the move I found that the lawn was not maintained in this garden while for the Gaston Monnerville esplanade, the lawn is maintained. In fact I do not know if it is a garden because it lacks flowers, as for example in the middle of it The positive thing is that it has toilets, a children's playground and a water fountain. On the other hand, a sign or an explanatory plan on the statues and vases is missing. Unlike the Luxembourg garden, it does not have a map or information panels to locate the various activities. To get there: The taxi station, "Port Royal" bus stop, line 38 "Observatory - Port Royal" at number 20 Avenue of the Observatory or bus stop, line 83 - Station "Assas Observatory" on Camille Jullian Square or RER "B" "Port Royal"

  • Beautiful garden where you'll find the place to play ping pong or any outdoor game. It has a place for children. Overall a good place for everyone, from those who like mild peace to those who want to play with friends
  • Good for street workout. Pullup bars dip bars etc. About 10 “pieces” of equipment total. On July 22 2019 I jumped the fence at 21:00 and worked out until 21:45 when the police blew the whistle. Me and about 10 other calisthenics people exited the park at this time. They won’t give you a ticket if you exit promptly when they blow the whistle. It’s too bad the park closes this early because this is when the temperatures are good for workout. I hope this helps other people who want to do street work outs in the park.
