La Grenouillère is an 1869 oil on canvas painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, now in the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm. It shows the 'camembert', a small island planted with a single tree, linking the island to a pontoon-bridge.

It was painted from the 'La Grenouillère' restaurant on the Île de la Grenouillère at Croissy-sur-Seine, as was Monet's Bain à la Grenouillère, also painted in 1869 in the early days of Impressionism.[1]
