Bosquet de l'Étoile (Bosquet de la Montagne d’Eau), Versailles

The current layout of this bosquet dates from 1704. However it is a complete remodeling of an earlier feature designed by André Le Nôtre in 1661. This original design had a five-sided central area bordered by a path. Ten years later, it was enlarged to include several paths leading to a new central water feature, a fountain that resembled a mountain.
