Top ways to experience Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
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 park near the Périphérique
Feb 2021
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.

What a beautiful park. Bridges, water, sunbathing areas, a gazebo. Here you can have a lovely picnic or enjoy the sun.

Many people relaxing
Jun 2019
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.

Fantastic escape
Apr 2019
This park is stunning and a great escape from the crowds of Paris. There is a monument at the top of the hill with great views and lovely landscaping. There was a little food counter in the park and we sat having a hot chocolate watching the world go by. Was perfect.

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

Magnificient
Feb 2020 • Family
This park is magnificient. It has a splendid  view when you higher and has a lake and caves worth wating for. Most people come here to run but you must know it is a succession of hills. Thus, if you want to run, l suggest you run around the Lake (one whole circle is 600 metres. However running on the hills can still be very pleasant, as long as you don't get tired too quickly. The vegetation is dense but not to much. Overall, it has a medium size, but they are many levels. In addition, it is in Paris, though quite off thd road.

One of the most beautiful places in Paris
Sep 2019
If you are fed up with all the "sights" and crowds of tourists, if you want to see something that feels real and alive with locals - then definitely this parc. The dramatic relief differences (a miniature mountain landscape on the Ile de France lowlands), quite impressive views of some Paris districts, genius loci. This is a place for picnic, run or walk, physical or yoga practice. It has the vibe, it has that something extra special. Just note they close it in the night.

Beautiful Oasis
Nov 2019
Off the beaten path but worth the metro ride to a wonderful fresh green park. Bring some lunch and have a grand stroll. Great getaway from the congestion of the city core.

NIce hidden gem of a park
Aug 2019
Having lived in Paris and returned many times, I never visited this park in the 19th until recently. It's quite and Oasis that takes you completely out of the city while still in the city. Great for relaxing, has a nice indoor/outdoor cafe, many trails and water features.
