This is the Jardin de Reuilly, a park that is traversed by the Promenade Plantée parkway. The parkway crosses the footbridge to the left, terraces lead down to the park. This park marks the division between the portion of the parkway that includes the Viaduc des Arts, and the portion that moves east below ground level and through a few tunnels to the city limit. The old Gare de Reuilly, a former railway station, now restored, is nearby.
The people you see here are clustered along the shadow of the bridge because it was very sunny and warm for most of the day. You are looking roughly east.
