Started in 1769, this park was expanded to about 25 acres in 1778. in 1860, the City of Paris bought the park and it was opened as a public space by Napoléon III. It became a favorite place for Marcel Proust to stroll.

The landscape architect, Thomas Blaikie, transformed the park into a collection of formal gardens during the latter years of the 1800's. Lawns, roses, flowers and ancient trees adorn the garden. A magnificent gilded railing surrounds the park.
