  • This square to the amazing shape in "Y' is located between the rue Balard and avenue Félix Faure, in the 15th arrondissement." Access from avenue to no. 122, one enters a place with trees with shading and benches to sit. Remarkable species decorate this place, with trees of Judea of purple bloom, as well as just as spectacular cherry trees. Pine trees retain green in winter! Side street Balard, an amazing fountain greets the visitor. She was named "The Polypores" because it is made of saucers in floor as these mushrooms growing on the trunk of the trees. Water dripping along these saucers to give an effect very successful with a very pleasant fountain sound. A large very shaded driveway gives access to the centre of the garden. A playground for children is very close. The colourful flower beds decorate this square where there is a nice peace of mind. This set honors the poet, graphic designer, cartoonist, playwright and french filmmaker Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) it is accessible by the metro station "Lourmel" line no. 8
