Imaginé par Charles Alphand et orchestré par Jean-Camille Formigé, l'aménagement du square date de 1880. L'ouverture fut retardée par des glissements de terrains dus à la présence de carrières de gypse. Il porte le nom de Louise Michel, dite la Vierge Rouge, figure de la Commune de Paris. Il est orné de deux fontaines, l'une du sculpteur Derré: la fontaine des Innocents (1907), l'autre de Paul Gasq, dédiée aux dieux marins (1932). On y trouve pommiers et poiriers à fleurs, érables, ptérocaryas, frênes, noyers, cédrèles, ormes, micocouliers, arbres de Judée, robiniers, sorbiers, sovonniers, hêtres...
