Lac Arboré: Parisian happiness
Lake Daumesnil is a 12-hectare artificial lake, fed by marl water and created from scratch. It has two separate islands, the Ile de Reuilly and the Ile de Bercy, connected by bridges.
Where is it?
It is located south-west of the Bois de Vincennes, east of Paris. This area has been a forest since antiquity and the hunting ground of the kings of France.
Situated in Paris, this lake is a real corner of rest and relaxation for Parisians in search of greenery and escaping from concrete. All around this lake there is a path, called "promenade Maurice-Boitel", which allows pedestrians to walk along the shores of the lake.
Created from scratch during the Second Empire, the lake was born from the will of Napoleon III and Baron Haussmann. The aim was to offer green spaces, as large and pleasant as those in London. It is one of the green projects born in the middle of the 19th century such as :
- Le parc Monceau
- Les parc des Buttes-Chaumont
- Le parc Montsouris
The photo gives us a wide angle view of the lake, where we can see the Ile de Reuilly, with its kiosk and cave, which occupies the centre of Lake Daumesnil.
