No. 236: Signs that les berges is opening soon

One of my favorite things in Paris is les berges, the new boardwalk along the Seine, just a few minutes from our apartment.

My darling ex-Mayor was responsible for closing off a few ramps and a riverside road and dreaming this pedestrian friendly Paris into existence. I love this place so much that I’m sure I can squeeze two or three more posts out of it before my time is up. But for the moment, let me just tempt those of you not yet in the know with a few signs that les berges will soon be up and running again and in full summertime swing.

    • Les berges is the best. Even when it’s not all put together, it’s still a great place to walk and picnic and people watch. Best new thing in Paris, à mon avis!
