Esplande Gaston Monnerville & Monnerville Bust
- The Esplade Gaston- Monnerville is located exactly at 7, place André Honnorat between the gates of the Luxembourg Garden and the beginning of the garden of the great explorers in the center of the Avenue de l’Observatoire. The avenue de l’Observatoire is occupied throughout its central part by a series of gardens, of which the Esplanade Gaston-Monnerville and the Luxembourg garden.
- Just outside the gates on the south side of the Luxebourg Gardens you will come across a statue dedicated to Gaston Monnerville, which is in an area that was renamed Esplanade Gaston Monnerville in the 6th Arrondissment of Paris, in memory of a President of the French Senate.
- Esplanade Gaston Monnerville, named after the French Guianese man of African descent who led the French Senate and served on France's Constitutional Council, is a stop on the private, woman-centric version of our Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden tour.

- The Esplanade Gaston-Monnerville is, since 2006, an esplanade and a green space located in the 6éme arrondissement or district of Paris. It is located between the rue Auguste-Comte and the garden of the great explorers Marco-Polo and Cavelier-de-la-Salle. This Parisian street was named after Gaston Monnerville, a notable French politician of the 20C.
- Following a request from the Association of Friends of Gaston Monnerville, the Conseil de Paris inaugurated on September 5, 2006 the renaming of the old jardin Cavelier-La Salle garden, in his honor. The bust in his homage, erected on the Esplanade in 2011, has his bust on the place André-Honnorat, and his plaque on Avenue Raymond-Poincaré, in the 16éme arrondissement, where he died.
