Quick Reference

Common in French formal gardens, where three, four, or five straight paths radiated out from a central point in a park or garden, so called from its resemblance to a goose's foot. It may have originated in town planning schemes where roads joined in a space, e.g. Piazza del Pòpolo, Rome.
