The Bridge with Golden Balls

Méréville, a Bridge in Need of Restoration


In order to make the estate even more accessible to visitors in 2018, it will be necessary to restore some of its follies and, in particular, the Bridge with Golden Balls. Located near the Island in the Large Lake, it was built by Bélanger between 1784 and 1786, to resemble a Chinese bridge. The wooden footbridge was replaced at the beginning of the 19th century by the current metallic footbridge. Currently, the structure is no longer considered safe and will require a complete restoration in order to make it accessible to visitors.
