The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
How to get there
  • Ledru-Rollin • 5 min walk
  • Bastille • 6 min walk

What a wonderful gift to the city especially Parisians in the 12th arrondissement and the Quinze-Vingts district. Certainly not a tourist hotspot by any means although this repurposed elevated train track MUST have provided inspiration to the creators of the popular Highline in New York City and Seoul Skypark - both defunct city infrastructure repurposed as contemporary public parks.

The ignominious entrance behind the Opera Bastille service entrance & carpark certainly does not befit such a lovely urban element. But once on top, the continuous aerial views of the surrounding neighborhoods are unique and another wonderful way to see the city. It is so relaxing and peaceful like a veritable oasis in the middle of a bustling metropolis.

Park users in the early morning are sparse, mostly confined to joggers and locals walking their pets. You may also encounter the odd homeless Parisian. It takes an hour to stroll leisurely through the entire length and it is never dull and actually quite photogenic. As a visitor to this amazing city, this would be so ideal for an early outing to collect thoughts before hitting the museums and galleries.

A brilliant idea, recycle the old elevated railroad as an elevated linear park leading to other bigger parks. If you are energetic, you can follow the trace of the old railroad through parks all the way to the edge of the city.. The landscaping is beautiful and it is a very popular place for long walks.

Coulee Verte Rene-Dumont is an elevated walkway in the city. We took a detour while wandering the streets and found ourselves in this walkway purely by chance. However we did not have much free time so only spent a short time there. It is quite a great way to get out of the heavy traffic and noise. Perhaps we will return another time.

Over the years, as we’ve had short visits to Paris, we’ve always planned for ‘the big one’ - the visit when we could finally do a lot of things on our ‘One Day in Paris’ list. Finally, on a chilly but sunny day we walked out to Place de la Bastille, and just a wee bit further to reach the Coulee Verte / Promenade Plantee / Greenway, an elevated park on the top of an old railway viaduct. The park was inaugurated in 1993 and until New York’s High Line park opened in 2009, it was the only elevated park in the world. What a fabulous walk we had - no scooters or bikes and only a couple of joggers. We did a couple of kms (the walk totals 4.7 km if you go right to the end) and then did a u-turn and came back part of the way before taking the stairs down to street level and walking along the Viaduc des Arts.

I love this elevated linear park that is a little under 5 km and what a treat for the visitors & for the residents living along this park. I lucked out & got to experience it while there was an art exhibit spread along the walk. It is about a half hour leisurely walk. The walk is totally paved in concrete, so, no special shoes needed. Be sure to bring water & be warned, there are no toilets along the route. Highly, highly recommended.

We found out about La Promenade Plantée by chance it turned out to be a lucky find. Strolling above the streets of Paris and enjoying all the plants was a delight. We began at the Bastille end planning to walk the full 4.8km but were disappointed to find the last section was closed off. Still, we had enjoyed it so much we turned around and walked back to the beginning and rewarded ourselves with café and patisserie when we had finished.

New Yorkers who love the new High Line should visit the original High Line in Paris. It's much older and more sophisticated design. Designed as a series of 'Rooms' with different floral plantings. each one different from the next.
A little hard to find, but located behind the new Modern Opera near the Place de la Bastille, where there's a set of steps up a very plain facade - but what a great experience lies beyond. At street level there are a number of unique stores built under the arches which support the former railroad bed. Great at sunset too.

Although this one was earlier made, the New York's High line is more famous. The Paris' one is set south of Bastille sq.
This gardened path runs along a disused railway line for few km, and is a pleasant elevated walk through a residential area.

What a great idea. A lovely peaceful and green way to spend a bit of time relaxing and seeing a part of Paris that you would not normally get to experience. They could improve the entrance and exit and both ends but there are signs. During our walk we found it popular with locals sitting/relaxing and a few joggers. Loved it.

Went here in a Sunday morning just to see what’s up, but got to walk almost the entire path. Many people use it to do their weekly work-out and run. Pleasant views om the buildings and great cover from the plants, especially the bamboo is impressive.
