This garden was created in 1988. It replaces the tracks of a former railway, disused in 1969 and which linked the suburbs to the Bastille station (where the Opera is now). It is 4.5 km long (2.33 miles) and runs from Bastille (behind the opera) to near Porte Saint Mandé. From that point, it is possible to walk to the Bois de Vincennes. Along the Daumesnil Avenue, the Promenade plantée, as a hanging garden, hangs above the Viaduc des Arts, then gets through the Jardin de Reuilly, under a tunnel and another tunnel till the far east of Paris. Many entrances (stairs and elevators) are displayed all along the way. For more information, call +33 8 3668 3112.
