There are sculptures to admire in the gardens of the Musée Rodin (7th), the ‘Buren Columns’ in the Domaine du Palais-Royal (1st), the Fontaine Médicis in the Jardin du Luxembourg (6th), the TourauxFigures sculpture by Jean Dubuffet in the Parc départemental de l'île Saint-Germain in Issy-les-Moulineaux, Chateaubriand’s home inside the Domaine départemental de la Vallée-aux-Loups, the monumentalfresco by the Sismikazot graffiti artists and the luminoussculpture Noonight in the Parc départemental des Cormailles … Cultural walks are also organized in some parks, like the Impressionists’ trail in the Parc départemental de L'Île-Saint-Denis.
