It is a long strip, where you walk from Passy bridge to Beaugrenelle, or vice-versa. Benches all along under trees to rest or eat while seeing Paris. Very nice place. Plus you see the Statue of Liberty (originally a gift from France, to the U.S.).

A small narrow man-made island on the river Seine, it owes its fame to a replica of the Statue of Liberty located on it. It is also close to the Eiffel Tower and can be seen from it.

Unfortunately, this park is not well maintained , unlike EVERY other park in the city. Grass and weeds need care before summer. Amd the pavement steps are in dire need of repair or replacement. Sad to say so.
