Childrens' fountain then hug left
You have come before the Island of Children, a sculpture of frolicking happy youngsters from the time of Louis XIV. Unfortunately, it's the only original vestige remaining in this wood. Not a single tree or shrub has subsisted. There was once an open-air theatre on a raised stage backed by fountains and terraces to accommodate spectators. Le Nôtre's complex and water-hungry design is long gone.
When you're done enjoying the company of the kids, hug the left and look for an opening to the right.
