Muette: between green spaces and urbanity.

 

Located in the 16th arrondissement, La Muette is the 62nd administrative district of Paris. From west to east, it stretches from the Bois de Boulogne to the Quai Branly. From north to south, the district’s borders run from Avenue Henri-Martin and Pont d’Iéna to Rue de l’Assomption and Rue du Ranelagh, via the Pont de Grenelle. Part of the Bois de Boulogne is also attached to La Muette: it is framed by Boulevard Richard Wallace to the north and Avenue de l’Hippodrome to the south.

History

Attached to Paris in 1860, the territory of the district of La Muette corresponds to the parish of the former village of Passy. The castle of La Muette, offered by Charles IX to the future Queen Margot, was located there. Marie-Antoinette also stayed there before her marriage to Louis XVI.

Parks

  • Jardin du Ranelagh: not far from the Bois de Boulogne, this large park will liven up the children’s day, especially thanks to its swings and its merry-go-round of wooden horses. There is also a bandstand. It is possible to walk among the chestnut and beech trees, but there are also trees of exceptional size and age. It is difficult to know where to look between the American honey locust, the Caucasus pterocaryer or the Byzantine hazelnut trees.
  • Jardins du Trocadéro: this magnificent park knows how to bring together the plant world and the aquatic world. As you walk around, you can see small pools of water cascading into a larger basin. Nearly 8,240 m3 of water is discharged by water cannons to finish their run in eight staircases.
