Copying the Rive Gauche’s riverside playground, a new flower-filled leisure area has opened on the north bank. Perfect for a balade and a verre de vin
It’s right in the heart of Paris, but the newest section of the Parc Rives de Seine is easily missed by visitors hunting out the well-known landmarks of the Right Bank. Opened in April, a stretch of riverbank between Pont Neuf and Pont de Sully has been transformed into a pedestrianised, nature-focused eco zone. It follows on the success of the Left Bank’s riverside revival in 2013 (between Pont D’Alma and Pont Royal) creating a vast, 10-hectare playground, criss-crossed by several bridges.
