Le banc du jardin des étangs Gobert

Bench banc jardin étangs Gobert Versailles
Once you have reached the top of yesterday's stairs, you arrive at a rather nice space which is occupied, in part, by this huge and very controversial 90 metres long (295ft) bench! The garden has materialised on what were once huge ponds, which used to provide water for the palace's fountains.

Une fois arrivés en haut de l'escalier que VDP vous montrait hier, vous arrivez à un espace vert occupé, en partie, par ce banc de 90 mètres, qui n'a pas échappé à la controverse. Le jardin est construit sur ce qui fut un étang alimentant les fontaines du château, d'où son nom !

People don't like change! It is the same here and actually I don't handle change in my own place very well. ;-))

I like the way it snakes around the lawn!

I like the idea, not so fond of the implementation. It seems cold and harsh

Very cool. One could skateboard on that bench, if one were predisposed to skateboarding which I am not in case you're wondering. You could try it, though, 'cause you're a lot younger than I am.

Just great! I guess this will be the longest bench we'll ever see on "A bunch of Benches"! :-)
