Welcome to the newly remodeled Place de la République

After a year and a half of construction and work, the Place de la République is back in action with a new modern and welcoming style.

A square for pedestrians
Now dedicated to pedestrians, Place de la République is an ideal spot for family outings. Entirely renovated and surrounded by vegetation, the square invites you to relax in its new atmosphere.  Children will enjoy the water mirror – miroir d’eau – on the ground, especially during hot summer days.  The well-known statue on the square is now surrounded by a refreshing water pool, complete with little water jets.  Red poppy-colored armchairs, chairs and tables are also available for your comfort.

L’R de jeux – the play area – on the square
L’R de jeux is designed for children with over 600 toys and games available for a wide range of ages. Foot scooters, board games, construction and puzzles will delight little ones. The games and toys are borrowed on a daily basis, which is perfect for an afternoon on the square. Set up on a 1000 m² terrace, this toy library is managed by the toy librarians of Ile-de-France Association.
