Front facade of the Washington's Mansion looks the West. In front there is unpaved roundabout with green lawn inside called the Mansion Circle. Futher west there is long, longitudinal strip of cut lawn called Bowling Green as it served as location for lawn bowling. The space was lined by large trees on both sides. The grass was regualrly cut with scythes and smoothed with a roller to keep the surface firm and even.
Green space of Paris, around Eiffel Towel called Mars Fields (look here) looked similar although it covered much larger area. The following weekend I visited Washington, DC when I saw similar but much larger in size green space called the Mall which also forms a cross.
