Try to avoid the busiest times (Wednesdays and weekends) for a splashtastic day out! Check out their website for detailed information.

Like many other green Parisian parks, the Andre-Citroën park is quite formal in its design: terraces, lawns and symmetrically arranged flower beds. It is dedicated to the famous car inventor, Citroën, whose first factory was situated near the banks of Javel nearby. Divided into "black," "white," "red," and "blue" gardens, it has a modern, futuristic aspect, emphasised by the large concrete patio, which dominates the "white" garden. Mostly visited by Parisians living in the area, it is fairly sheltered from the crowds of tourists who flock to the more famous parks. The visit is worthwhile though to see its cascades, luxurious plants, towers, lilies and its tranquillity.

Created through an international collaboration of French, American, and Italian architects and inaugurated in 1958, the Maison de l'Unesco has stood as a symbol for world culture and cooperation for decades. The main building stands seven stories tall and is shaped like a three-pronged star, next to the cubical "accordion" structure for permanent delegations and non-governmental organizations. It hosts dance, opera, and concert performances, conferences and debates, festivals and celebrations. The Maison presents marvelous cultural opportunities to visitors and citizens of Paris.
A monumental project, the plaza and the buildings dubbed Les Colonnes (The Columns) were created by Spanish architect and city planner Ricardo Bofill. The Columns were inspired by classical Mediterranean architecture and the baroque period. The Greek-temple style colonnade blends with the futuristic mirrored-glass facades that overlook the gardens. A fountain - a slanted disk over which water flows - reigns over the plaza. A pity that it's often not working. For more information regarding this place, call +33 8 3668 3112.
