Description
In the past, the place where the Parc Georges Brassens is now located was part of the old hamlet of Vaugirard, which was incorporated into Paris in 1860. Vineyards, and then market gardening followed one another before the establishment of abattoirs between 1894 and 1974.
After their destruction, a park of large dimensions (8.7 hectares) was laid out and opened in 1984. The park is named George Brassens as the singer lived in a nearby house at 42 rue Santos-Dumont. The park_s entrance is surrounded by imposing bulls, created by the animal sculptor Auguste-Nicolas Cain. The magnificent steel frame of the "horses hall", the belfry, and many other architectural elements are from the abattoirs, and were integrated into the park. A wooded hill, surmounted by a belvedere, dominates the park which is provided with playgrounds for children, a "rock-school" for climbing, and a bandstand.
highlights: a rose garden, vineyards, a scented garden ( 80 species of odoriferous plants), and a bee hive are also part of the visit. Antique book market in an adjoining space.
