Planted or casting green promenade runs through all the 12th arrondissement of Paris (4.5 km). It borrows the route of a former railway.
The walk planted, designed by Philippe Mathieux and Jacques Vergely, occupies the site of the railway line that connected the Bastille square to the Varenne-Saint-Maur. It borrows in its first part the viaduct of arts of the 12th arrondissement of Paris. Result of a successful alliance between wild vegetation, who invaded the outskirts of the railway line and a more modern landscaping, 6.5 ha promenade allows to browse the 12th arrondissement of Paris in its length, safe from any traffic. Change of scenery, we discover this area of Paris in a different way.
