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.

An escape from the busy Paris streets, this former overground tram line has been transformed into a very nice walkway with lots of green and nice views over the streets of Paris and sometimes even into apartments. If you have seen everything else, this is a nice alternative on a sunny day and can take you all the way from the Place de la Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes.

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.

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.

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.
