In the twelfth century , the location of the Parc de Bercy is found the head of a lordship . A few years later , the estate became the property of a wealthy family . In the nineteenth century, It laid great wine warehouses . The wine trade grew dramatically because merchants were not required to pay taxes for the delivery of wine to the capital. They arrived by tank car at the station of Rapee and boat on the banks of the Seine. The banks of the Seine drew many Parisians because of ginguettes formed therein and the various events organized on Sundays and feast days . In the twentieth century , some warehouses disappeared because of the destruction of the fortifications of Thiers. The activity of warehouses deteriorated gradually . During the 1970s, the Bercy warehouses were abandoned . The area was redeveloped in all its entirety. In the early 1990s, it was decided to develop the former site of warehouses for the new image of the area. It appealed to some architects and landscapers to build a large park. Work began in 1993.
