Parc Kellermann is a public park located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris which was created between 1939 and 1950 on the former bed of the Bièvre river. The park is located between boulevard Kellermann, the rue de la Poterne-des-Peupliers, and rue Max-Jacob. The nearest metro station to the park is Porte-d'Italie.
The park was built on the former bed of the Bièvre river, a tributary of the Seine which was covered over in the 20th century. In 1937, the future park was the site of several pavilions of the 1937 Paris Exposition whose main site was at the Place du Trocadéro. Following the exposition, the chief architect of the Exposition, Jacques Gréber, transformed it into a public park. Gréber had an international reputation as a landscape architect; he also designed the Fairmount Parkway, now the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, in Philadelphia. The park contains pieces of architecture and sculpture from the era of the Exposition, unfortunately deteriorated from their original state.
