With its magnificent « Grand Parquet » site, and the hippodrome of la Solle, Fontainbleau has made itself the «Horse Capital of the world» and hosts internationally-reputed events with participants from across the entire equestrian world.

The growth of its population, the presence of the NATO military and the founding of faculties of higher education and of the headquarters of many businesses brought about the growth of the real estate market, the improvement of the public transport networks and the construction of sporting and educational facilities. The urban zone, limited by the forest, has above all expanded into the old market garden space and the land of private owners.
