Parc du Champ de Mars information
Running southeast from the Eiffel Tower, the grassy Champ de Mars – an ideal summer picnic spot – was originally used as a parade ground for the cadets of the 18th-century École Militaire , the vast French-classical building at the southeastern end of the park which counts Napoleon Bonaparte among its graduates. The steel-and-etched glass Wall for Peace memorial (2000) is by Clara Halter.
