The Water Parterre

The first stop is at the Water Parterre. This is a statue at the North Basin of the Water Parterre. It is called 'The Marne' and was made by Etienne Hongre (1628-1690)
The ?Water Parterre? has two ponds and both of them have four statues depicting the rivers and streams of France, and they also have four nymphs and four groups of children.
