This park is hard to get to, you have to take the Metro 7bis out to the 19th arrondissement but it is worth the trip. Go during the week when the local walking/jogging traffic is less. The park has a lot of steps to get to the higher parts (like Temple de la Sibylle) but you will be rewarded with... More

I have read in my guide that this is a superbe park with great view of the city and I have to say that I was rather dissapointed when we visited it. I can't say that it is not a nice park, although not superbe, and the views of the city are rather limited to very specific points that you... More

We were here with our kids who were dying for a playground. We couldn't find one, and couldn't find the park's map. Nevertheless, this is a great neighborhood park - people all around, nice pond and trails. Just bring a snack if you are there before noon as none of the food stands are open. With kids, I would skip... More

I've been to Paris many times and have experienced all of the "Must Do" tourist items, some several times. So when I'm here I'm really out to find the Paris that most people, except those who live here, will actually never experience. This park is one of those. It is off the beaten path from a Metro, RER or bus... More

Ok, look I know that when you look on the map this park looks like it is way out of the way, (and in truth it is) *but* that being said, if you have some time, by all means stop in and see it. There is a lovely lake in the middle, a manmade hill with some nice views of... More

Being a bit of an "Anorak Cinephile" I thought we'd visit this Paris park after I had seen it featured in Eric Rohmers 1981 film "La Femme de L'aviateur". In the film it looked like a lovely place in which to partake of a quiet stroll.........How wrong I was!! The illusion was shattered by the constant dodging of hundreds of... More

Never heard about it, before I had carefully read the travel guide. And I don't regret. The most charming park with the lake, cave with waterfall, rock hill with gazebo and beautiful view of Sacre Coeur. I definitely recommend to spend 2 hours and relax there.
