The inspiration behind this project is Manet’s Le déjeuner sur l'herbe. As a counterpoint to the thundering noise of the highway running below, a place of quiet, rest, leisure and solitude has been designed. The edges of the park are delineated by various types of trees and several allotment gardens, creating a dense perimeter that embraces the meadow at the heart of the park. Manet’s vision of Le déjeuner sur l'herbe lives on and comes to reality in this new public garden for the 21st century.
