This park is probably less known among tourists but is definitely worth visiting it. The little lake with the island in the middle and the pavilion on the top makes it very romantic. There are some restaurants as well. Just make sure there are no works in the park before you visit. It was under reconstruction when we visited it... More

Just east of Gard du Nord and Gard de l'Est is not somewhere I'd been recommended, quite justifiably after I'd walked through it. But if you just keep with it and walk 5-10 min more it all changes, and you get to this beautiful park. Landscaped, beautiful suspension bridge, it's where locals hang. There was even an opera singer rehearsing... More

It was a lovely August day when we visited this delightful park. The path up to the little temple is blocked off as it is now dangerous but you can get some lovely photos of it from around the park. There were lots of locals using the park for jogging and exercising. Some ladies were exercising to music. There was... More

Beautiful man-made gardens and wonderful lakes - a really relaxing place to spend a few hours especially when it's hot. Space to dangle your feet in the lakes, feed the ducks or do some sunbathing! Entrance is right outside the Buttes Chaumont Metro station although there are also other entrances which have bus routes outside. There's a reasonably priced refreshment... More

In my opinion it's the best park in Paris! I visited all of them or almost all and this one is the most beautiful and natural! You can walk on the woody hanging bridge, go in to a cave with small waterfall or walk around and see the city from the up - there is nice "mountain" with special views... More

Some parts were under the construction, but it was still the most relaxing and prettiest park I saw in Paris. Not crowded, mostly locals, great view to the city, perfect place to take your wine and friends and go sit there in the evenings. There is also Rosa Bonheur, where we had very nice time and met lots of locals.

This beautiful park (built 1867) is less popular among Paris visitors comparing to other top Paris attractions and this is why you should visit. There are much more locals than tourists here. Landscape design is great - you will find an artificial lake, a grotto and waterfalls. One of the park's bridges was designed by Gustave Eiffel. The park is... More

Yes, it has some views and some grass to sit on, but it's not stupendous. It is under significant construction (main gate was closed), so be sure to google before you go. It's extremely steep so you're really walking on a tar path or large dirt road, water features were turned off, lots was brown and the pond was still... More

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.
