Along the banks of the river Seine …

Along the banks of the Seine river

Listed as World Heritage the banks of the Seine river dates back to well before the founding of Lutèce (Paris). The urban project of “greening” both sides of the river has been going on for sometime and after heated debates between politicians and opponents the river finally has its last words. By Spring 2013 Parisians will be able to enjoy beautiful car free promenades along the Seine river on both the right and left banks. This link gives you an idea of the wonderful project nearing to completion. Reducing traffic pollution and embracing the beauty of city life with the river is the overall concept of the new urban planning of Paris keeping in line with protecting one of the World Heritage treasures.

    Beautiful images. And I hope more cities follow Paris’ lead and begin preserving/restoring their historic natural resources.
