L'île aux Cygnes, Paris

4.1
#5 of 9 in Nature in Paris
Discover a small, unique escape from the city at L'île aux Cygnes, an artificial island in the middle of the Seine. The narrow islet mostly consists of a tree-lined walkway where you can jog, stroll, or simply people-watch from one of the benches. At the end of the path stands a Statue of Liberty, a one-fourth scale replica of its larger relative in New York City. Nearby, look out for the public workout space and playground tucked under the Grennelle Bridge.

It was built downstream southwest of a bend that was formerly an island, first called Ile Maquerelle, then Ile des Cygnes, which was merged with the left-hand inner bank of the curve in 1786." this is how Wikipedia - the small island where it used to be (in the year) 1672) the eponymous swans were located, invites you for a short walk and at the end of the avenue you will also meet the copy of the (famous) Statue of Liberty.
