The Saint-Germain island, is said to have been in 52BC the location of at huge battle between Gallics and Romans.

Whatever the early history is, the island's name comes from its medieval owners : the monks of the Saint Germain Abbaye, who used to have there their gardens and fields until the 19 th century.

Later it became a storage area and a commercial wharf on the Seine.

Since 1979, it is a quiet public park, known mostly by the neighbourhood's mothers, their children and the joggers.

Inside, you can find :
- some artwork and sculptures
- the environment's house
- some educational and experimental gardens
- a poney club
- a restaurant
