A beautiful park with high bridges and lake with island. Nice cafes where you can sit and breastfeed for hours over one hot chocolate (that is btw fantastic real melted chocolate served with hot milk). Not a large park but with lots or steep paths, lots of joggers there. Some stairs that can be avoided if you take another path.... More

This is one of those pleasant places, where it's nice to sit down on the grass and just chill out. Of course, if you're into other activities, they're fine too, like sports, walking, or even a picnic.

Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont is the 3rd largest park in Paris and undoubtedly one of the loveliest place to enjoy seasons and nature. There's a suspended footbridge, waterfalls, a lake, a decorative roman temple, all this giving a special charm to the place.

A great place to get lost for a while. But it attracts people for all sorts of reasons, from walking the dog or running, to a tai chi session. From the higher points you can see Sacre Coeur.

This is one of my favorite parks in Paris! Such a lovely out of the way spot. It wasn't very crowded and it was definitely one of the more scenic parks we visited! Definitely make the effort to make a quick walk through!

Everything in this park is artificially built, however since 1870 ( under Haussman's urging ) nature has taken over and only you know the historical background you would not know that this hilly park was conceived on top of a refuse dump before the district became the XIXth district. Creeks, water fall, lake, suspended bridge, tea room, mature trees etc.... More

If you are in the area this park is well worth a visit. Quite hilly in parts, but some good views to Sacre-Coeur etc. Converted by Baron Haussmann from a quarry in the 1860's, creating a lake and waterfall from artificial rocks. A suspension bridge then steps takes you up to the Roman style temple with good views. Lots of... More

We have been to Paris a few times, but always during cold weather. On our most recent trip to Paris we were thrilled to visit the parks! Par Des Buttes Chaumont was one of my favorite parks. The park is huge and Parisians really do hang out here. We combined this with a trip to the Montmarte area and Sacre-Coeur.... More

If you are just in Paris for a few days, trying to see the must-see sights, then this probably won't make your itinerary. However, if you want to experience Paris as a Parisian would, take a picnic on a Sunday afternoon and watch what Parisian life is really like. This park was created by Napoleon III for the "peuple" (poor... 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.
