The area
Address
Neighborhood: Belleville / Père 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.

    Beautiful green space just outside of the typical Paris touristy spots - excellent park
    We were looking for something different to do in Paris, since we've seen the "usual" tourist spots and attractions. This was a great gem. Easy to get to via the Metro. We walked a little bit of the local neighborhood, that was interesting. At the entrances, they have local street vendors. The park is actually very big with some elevation gains. Used by many many French locals. Lots of runners, walkers, parents with their kids. It is definitely loved. With its crazy history, nice to see it got transformed into this lovely spot. We spent several hours here. Walked the hiking path to the "top" for a good view. Then walked around the lake - it has many wildlife, great for bird watching. The park features a suspension bridge and Temple Sybille up high that you can see from the lake shore. Lots of shade so this is a great spot on a hot summer day.

    A true hidden gem
    We discovered this green oasis and explored it at length. What a lovely spot in the middle of a big city. Plenty of paths to follow and explore, plenty of benchs to sit and take some time out. The lake is pretty and really lovely to sit by and watch the world happen around you.

    nice
    We walked through this park on a sunny afternoon , beginning of October. The park is large, beautiful, green, hilly (even steep at times), with some beautiful View-points. Not too crowded, relaxing , a cafe and public rest rooms. Recommended if you can spare an hour or so .

    Very Pleasant Walk
    Very nice park/green space in the city. Visited early morning and had an enjoyable walk around. Very popular with joggers/walkers. Some areas are closed currently for renovation, but there is still plenty available to see, and from the highest elevation point, some nice views of the city.

    Spectacular Park in the 19th Arr
    The Buttes should be on every visitor's list. Pick up a baguette at a nearby cafe or shop and sit and enjoy it on one of the many grassy areas or many benches. The views are spectacular. The Parc is on the site of an old gypsum quarry so there are steep lush rises to about 500 feet and the noted buttes. The circular well marked walking trails gradually take you up to some of the best views of Paris (vav Sacre Coeur) and bring you back down to the pond area. Not many tourists here so its relaxing and a favourite spot for wedding photos. The bridges were closed on my visit so I'll be back!

    Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
    Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is a really pretty rolling hills park in the 19 AR. We saw a part of the park but it is large and only spent a little while here. Great views of Paris. A good place for a return trip or a place if you have a lot of spare time. Be aware of the metro stop. Many stairs up look for the elevator at any age.

    A stunning must see park.
    What a beautiful park this is, an old gypsum quarry transformed into a stunning park. It is a National park and so free of charge to enter. There are some magnificent specimen trees as you meander along the paths. During our three days in Paris following Disney we visited this park twice.

In her early researching of Paris, my daughter discovered this park. Then we saw it featured in Netflix's Lupin!
It is not on the regular tourist beaten track but we came after a day at a museum. 30 minute metro ride from central Paris. We got picnic supplies right outside the metro stop and walked to the park which was so full of Parisians, on the sunny Saturday (but not during the heatwave). It was fun to feel like we were surrounded by locals instead of just tourists and the group of people was so diverse. There was that ball game being played at the top (beside the public toilet) and tons of picnickers and families playing.
The gazebo (featured in Lupin) is closed for renovations but it was still lovely to see it from below. If you have time or are near by, definitely worth a stop.

A large park with a lot of great vegetation. There is a pond in the middle. I visited the park for an evening jogging, and it was just fine. There were many people doing different things like walking, jogging, relaxing, and many of them with their children. I saw a couple of restaurants on duty inside the park.

Wonderful park with slopes and verdant meadows..
Some beautiful artifacts, a nice grotto and bridges over peaceful streams.
A castle on top of a hill with a view onto the park completes the visit
Enjoy it

A welcomed oasis in a busy part of Paris. Lovely views and extremely peaceful.
The waterfalls were amazing. Unfortunately the terrace was closed to the public which was a real shame as we would liked to have seen the view from there, but nonetheless visiting the Park was worth it.
This park is very steep in places but this gives it its dramatic scenery.
Plenty of places to grab a coffee and sit around the lake .

Absolutely Gorgeous. We visited whilst waiting for our hotel check in to begin on a rainy january morning. There were lots of people out on their daily run, plenty of benches to sit on and loads of amazing landscapes to look at. A fantastic walk and gorgeous scenery - can just imagine how amazing it all looks in the summer.

This is a great park, with well manicured green space, surprisingly steep elevation, and gorgeous views of Paris. I would not recommend this park to a first time visitor though. Hit the big tourist sites or you’ll regret it. If you have a lot of time or you’ve done the necessary things, then why not make the trip to Buttes-Chaumont? What you must do is walk up to the Temple de la Sibylle which is the heighest point in the park. From there you can see the Sacré-Cœur and it’s a stunning view. For the visiting runners who insist on training while traveling, the elevation of Buttes-Chaumont will scratch the itch. Belleville neighborhood is close by and Pere Lachaise is a couple metro stops.

We visited this park because it is my boyfriend's favority in the city. I can see why. The view from the top is great, there are many places to sit, enjoy the sun, have a picknic and just take a stroll. It is also really quiet, so a great place to just relax and take in the city. I will be visiting again, next time I am in Paris!
