Nice park to have a stroll or undertake some outdoor activities. Note that is is a modern park, not a warm sit around under a tree kind of thing. There a nice sculptures and architectural vistas. Makes for great picture-ops!

Great park to stroll around with many interesting buildings - once the abattoir of Paris - now a cultural area with music, theater, and the science and technology center.

Parc de la Villette was having a jazz festival while we were there and we saw 3 fantastic concerts . Charles bradely, Maceo Parker, james carter and omar sosa. Concerts take place year round at the City of Music in the park. check it out. 2 different metro lines stop right at the park entry.
