"Le square Béla-Bartók est un square du 15e arrondissement de Paris, situé au cœur des immeubles du Front-de-Seine, et entouré par le quai de Grenelle et la place de Brazzaville.

Description
Créé en 1981, il rend hommage au compositeur et pianiste hongrois Béla Bartók (1881-1945), non seulement par son nom mais aussi par une statue baptisée Béla Bartók, œuvre d'Imre Varga et don de la ville de Budapest en 1982 (à noter que Imre Varga est l'auteur d'une autre statue nommée Béla Bartók et située à Bruxelles1).

D'une superficie de 6 100 m2, ce jardin paysager est planté de rhododendrons, de bruyères et de magnolias ; on y trouve également une petite bambouseraie.

Le square abrite une fontaine en métal reposant sur un socle en mosaïque, Cristaux, (souvent appelée « fontaine Béla-Bartók »), sculptée en 1981 par Jean-Yves Lechevallier"

Description
Created in 1981, it pays tribute to the Hungarian composer and pianist Béla Bartók (1881-1945), not only by name but also by a statue called Béla Bartók, a work of Imre Varga and donated by the city of Budapest in 1982 (to note that Imre Varga is the author of another statue named Béla Bartók and located in Brussels1).

Covering an area of 6,100 m2, this landscaped garden is planted with rhododendrons, heather and magnolias; there is also a small bamboo plantation.
