At its eastern end, the 2.8 mile (4.5km) long promenade plantée feeds into the jardin de Reuilly, a beautiful park with very pretty and varied plantings close to the Bois de Vincennes. There is a large bed planted mainly with Mediterranean species, such as olive trees (Olea europea), umbrella pines (Pinus pinea), cypresses (Cupressus sempervirens), and European fan palm (Chamaerops humilis). Adjacent lies an area planted like a modern take on a cottage garden, with a wild mixture vegetables such as cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata) and flowers such as pot marigold (Calendula officinalis) and even a scare crow. More such different beds may be found around most of the edge of the park, all framing a large central lawn for people to relax and play, traversed well overhead by a delicate and elegant bridge, so that those merely travelling across the park and those making use of the green are never in each other's way.
In the west, the promenade plantée extends all the way to la Bastille, and the space under the arches of the viaduct is used to house art shops and craft-related businesses in a program known as le viaduc des Arts.
