It was created during the Paris development by Haussmann, under Napoleon III, in 1868. The Chief Architect, Jean Charles Alphand, has led this project as those of the large Parisian parks (Butte Chaumont, Parc Montsouris, Bois de Vincennes, etc.).

An impeccable green space. It is a real gem for the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods. In fact, Paris is far from being a green city compared to Berlin, Vienna, etc. According to a census, the number of trees in the city of light is only 184500. The large half of them are planted on the edge of the streets. Despite this, throughout the haussmannian neighborhoods there is a near absence of verdures. "Paris is beautiful but monotonous. It lacks significantly trees, my Lithuanian friend commented on his beloved city. And he's not wrong.
