Although it's long been discovered and usually crowded because tourists take the Seine boat trips (Vedettes du Pont Neuf) from this point, it's a very cute, triangle shaped park at the end of Ile de la Cite, accessed through somewaht concealed narrow steps behind the Statue of Henry IV. The gate of the park is the point where King Philip the Fair had Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master of the Knights Templar Order, burned at stake in March 1314. Take your sandwich and wine with you: the park is a perfect place for small outdoor meals. Although parks are usually closed in Paris after 20:00-20:30, I witnessed several times that this one stays open until later hours. Also, although there are signs that it forbidden to step on the grass during certain months, it's not an obeyed rule, so it's a nice picnic place.
