Of Contemporary Art. Matter of taste, but some are worth the look for their originality. I took some pictures with captions. You can come by metro, line 7, station "Sully Morland" or line 5 and "RER C" station "Station of Austerlitz".
Some nice sculptures by the river, in a quiet location. Unfortunately, the park itself was not well maintained.
This is a fabulous, little known sculpture garden, thus not overcome with crowds of tourists. Small and therefore manageable; easy to get to and makes great setting for memorable photos. Easy to combine with a visit to the Museum of Natural History, which is nearby.
