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.

A really interesting park of many different areas - great for an afternoon's stroll and away from the usual touristy areas of Paris.

Hello, I was staying at Jean Jaures street and I had the privilege to go there on foot. you can have a good walk in a good sight seeing place or rent a bike and make the tour. It is Preferable to bring your drinks inside the parc.

The many pathways and trees offer places to sit in the cool and, there... More
