Remember when I mentioned that Levallois-Peret, our base in Paris, was the neighborhood where Gustave Eiffel had his workshop? To commemorate this very fact, a playful and lush park was planted in his honor. While small in size, the park packs a memorable punch. You’ll find a kaleidoscope of plants, whimsical shrubs, flowerpots stacked to create animals, and other light-hearted flourishes.
