The Jardin du Trocadéro (Trocadero Garden) covers 93,930 square meters, extending from the Palais de Chaillot to the Seine River. There is the famous Fountains of Varsovie, created in 1937 by Roger Expert and Paul Mâitre. The Varsovie Fountains are a series of cascading basins, dominated by a large basin, with an array of 20 cannon styled water-jets throwing 5,700 liters of water per second to a distance of 50 meters, as well as 56 water-sprays throwing water 4 meters out and there are 12 vertical fountains throwing water 7 meters high.

I saw many sculptures in the Jardin du Trocadéro . The first level of stairs from the Palais de Chaillot, are two sculptures made of stone, "L'Homme" (The Man) by Pierre Traverse on the west side and "La Femme" (The Woman) by Daniel Bacqué on the east side.
