Get out at Bolivar, and walk upstairs in a upcomming neigherbhood to Buttes Chaumont. The park itself is small, but OK and the rocks are good. Nice to go with childeren, since i saw many.

61 acres in area - the 5th largest park in the city. Commenced in 1864 and opened in 1867. 10,000 workers were employed to turn this once terrible area into the wonderful park you see today. However, they are still - as you can see - continuing to improve it now with the works in progress. Many of the original... More

You can take the bus from central Paris to get to this amazing Parc. While large you can walk, sit, exercise, hang out with dog people, just admire the amazing beauty. You can even see a few wedding parties across the street at City Hall. It's up there with Parc Monceal but entirely different.

Baron Hausmann, at the request of Napoleon Bonaparte, made a park out of a "dump." Accessable by bus or metro, the park is vast and has lots of paths. There are flat paths if you want to gently walk and steep ones. One gives you an exciting view of Paris! I'd have given it more than average but it is... More

Easy access with 2 metro stations around, it's a good way to feel somewhere outside the city and to enjoy great views too. Built on a land own by the city, this was a kind a quarry so expect some dramatic landscape and humps everywhere which also mean you can find yourself alone ! Yes alone in Paris ! Or... More

The parc looks really nice unfortunately we did not get the most out of it as major works are being conducting closng several aisle and forcing us to backtrack a couple of time. We will definately go back once the works are over, the view points over Paris were interesting and he parc is well maintained.

Beautiful & huge parc in the 19 arrondissement. Greenery at its best, nice lake and seating benches almost everywhere. Best for families and breakthrough escape from Paris crowded roads and streets.

It is not a main attraction but I think is a MUST for every romantic couple who choose Paris! It is worth every minute to get there by any public transport.

Staying in Belleville / Pere Lachaise

Neighborhood Profile
Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery, family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between local stores and establishments. The richness of the population here has created a little Chinatown of Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one street to another as one passes from white walled provincial homes to tall blocks and reconverted homes. The whole area is an inspirational mix of people from all corners of the world frequented by artists, students, immigrants, and Parisian families. Once home to supporters of the Paris commune, its rebellious nature is now offset by its rural charms.
