La Promenade Pereire is a green pathway that crosses part of the 17th arrondissement and follows the outline of the “petite ceinture” belt along boulevard Pereire, from Porte Maillot to Place du Maréchal Juin.
It extends from both sides of the square that has the same name. This walk is broken up by spaces that are sometime enclosed (7 of them), sometimes open. The landscaping is beautiful: roses, magnolias, heather, peonies… climbing plants, clematis, wisteria and honeysuckle that are wrapped around pergolas… trees of different varieties. It alternates between open spaces and denser ones. The promenade is decorated with a series of bronze sculptures created by Boris Lejeune between 1988 and 1990. The promenade takes its name from the brothers Emile-Jacob Pereire (1800-1875) and Isaac Pereire (1806-1880), parliamentary bankers who played an important role in developing the railway network. You will mainly encounter local inhabitants. Children come here to play after school on the swings, table tennis tables and climbing frames and you may also bump into some business people in a hurry.
