The length of the "green corridor," the promenade of Paris, is 4.5 kilometers. Like that of New York, it was also built on the bridge of an abandoned 19th century railroad. The original railway line connected the Bastille to the suburbs. It ceased operating in 1969.
The promenade was designed by two architects: Jacques Wrzelli and Philip Matthew.
Pedestrians will enjoy the tall garden, surrounded by modern buildings. Along the way you will find benches, small lawns, green trees and stunning views. Those who choose to go on the bike route will find special ways to get around at ground level.
