About this spot
The Jardins du Trocadéro is a large open space in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. The area is bordered to the northwest by the wings of the Palais de Chaillot and to the southeast by the Seine and Pont d'Iéna. The park has an area of 9.39 hectares. The gardens were designed by Jean-Charles Alphand.

The "gardens" were created for the 1937 World Fair on the site of the former Palais du Trocadero. Most notable element is the Warsaw Fountain, a rectangular basin with 12 fountains spouting 12m high water, and 24 smaller fountains.

The bassins are popular in summer for the Parisiens to find some "cool" in the hot summer days.
