Parc Jean-Valjean is a park operated by the People's Parks and Forests agency. It is situated along the Rivère Berri between Streeter, New Seoul, Staed, West Belfast, Colov, and East Blix. It is the world's largest urban park, and at any time there are usually at least 50,000 people in the park, with weekends frequently exceeding 4 million people in the park. During events, there can be as many as 40 million people in the park.

The Park is internationally-renowned for its large events venue, Les Champs, especially Les Champs d'Ouest, which have hosted some of the world's largest concerts and most popular musicians. The Place Olympique was built to host the Olympics, but during the winter is a popular music venue, while year-round it hosts many sporting events. The Espace Pour La Vie is home to the largest zoo in the PDRD, the Parc Zoologique Blixien. The Botanical Gardens and the Parc d'Autochtones are some of the most popular gardens in the world. The Palais Blixien is one of the most beautiful Rupertland royal palaces outside of Rupertland.

Composition

Parc Jean-Valjean is composed of 31 divisions. All of the parks were overseen by the le Comité pour l'établissement d'un parc dans la newland de Blixe (CÉPB) when it was originally formed in 1854. The committee's Director from 1854-1893 was Josée Lafebvre (née Ritz), who worked alongside the Leading Architect, Richard Ofemile, a renowned Rupertland architect who worked on the project until 1890.
