It is one of the english-style gardens that Jean-Charles Alphand created during the reign of emperor Napoléon III. This one dates back from after 1860, when the Batignolles village was made part of the city of Paris.
The garden has some beautiful trees, such as a giant sequoia, and 4 plane trees, one of them being as high as 30 meters. It also features exotic plants and, modelled after the Bois de Boulogne, a miniature river with its lake (ducks and swans galore) and cascade as well as a miniature cave.
