Named after the French marshal François-Christophe Kellermann, this public park covers 5.6 hectares between the Boulevard Kellermann and the Boulevard Périphérique. Its gardens extend over three levels and are traversed by a river that flows over a waterfall. The park also has playgrounds and sports fields.
It’s the largest green space in the 13th arrondissement and the second-largest green space in Paris created after the destruction of the Thiers wall. In the 1840s, the Thiers wall was erected and encompassed the entire Paris. When the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 was over, the enclosure became redundant and it was demolished in 1919. The area was redeveloped in the next decade. In 1937 the Parc Kellermann was created.
