History[edit]

On August 7, 1850, a part of the territory of Saint-Gratien was detached and merged with a part of the territory of Deuil-la-Barre, a part of the territory of Soisy-sous-Montmorency, and a part of the territory of Épinay-sur-Seine to create the commune of Enghien-les-Bains. On that occasion the commune of Saint-Gratien lost the scenic lake now known as the Lake of Enghien.

Transport[edit]

Saint-Gratien is served by Saint-Gratien station on Paris RER line (C) and by the ({{[1]}}) bus number 138 going to Paris — Porte de Clichy.
