This park is huge and has waterfalls to hike to and some real climbing for folks who have spent too much time on the flat tourist track. We stopped here after a fantastic boat tour on the Paris canals and easily got back home by Metro in time for dinner.

Paris has hundreds of parks, many of them wonderful. This English-style, rolling park is the best and perfect for strolling, picnicking, photography - or even a snooze. There's a tower in the middle that, from the oversized pond below, looks like it belongs in a Lord of the Rings scene. You can eat at the park's cafe or take something... More

I strolled (twice) in this park for several hours. The hill in the middle with the viewpoint really stayed in my mind and is remembered as one of the highlights of Paris. This park can easily fill several hours of covering the different corners of the park and sitting in some of them for reading, discussion, etc.

We visited the park with low expectations wondering why we are going there given Paris has so much more to offer. But we are glad we did. While this may not be top on your list of Paris attractions, it should be if you are visiting the neighborhood. The park has a lot of features that would be worth your... More

Having never visited the 19eme before, we were really pleased to come across this delightful park with many areas to explore. Very family orientated and we felt completely safe at sunset.

A park in Paris that is not landscaped in the traditional sense. Built around and on an old quarry, it appears to be a park created by nature. There is a lake with wildlife, a man made grotto, waterfalls and lots of grassy areas on which to lounge. Good views too over northern Paris and to Sacre-Coeur.

Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a wonderful place to hang out in the evening or just generally on a pleasant day. There is free WiFi in the park.

I've visited all the bigger parks in Paris and this one wins, hands down. You feel like you could still be in turn of the century Paris, with the Pavilions still in tact and functioning. A lake with an indoor waterfall and an expansion bridge you can cross to get from one hill in the park to the next hill.... More

Beautiful vistas over Paris and well tended gardens over a huge area.The most famous feature of the park is the Temple de la Sibylle, perched at the top of a cliff fifty metres above the waters of the artificial lake.
