    Lovely walk
    One of my favorite walk in Paris:) both as a parisian and tourist. It takes you from bois de vincennes to bastille through a very pleasant walk through the buildings and parks (its an old railway converted into a promenade). Which means that you can then access central Paris in no time. Once arrived in bastille, walk through the arsenal and you go to notre dame along the seine. Lovely :)

    Hidden gem 🌞
    Where the railway once was, its now a superb walking area for several km . On a hot day in Sept 2023 ( 33 ° C) it was a chill place to enjoy a "promenade" in the shadow. Clean, safe, well kept, nice flowers (even plenty of roses blooming in September!). Benches to sit down and relax. Many local joggers. Green heart of Paris, away from the hustle&bustle 🌿🌳🌹🌺

    Elevated Linear Park
    One of my favorite things to do in Paris is to take a long walk in this elevated park. It used to be a railroad line stretching out to the suburbs, long abandaoned, but then turned into a lovely linear park. It connects up with a couple of other much wider parks further east and one can walk all the way out to the Peripherique. Some clever planting along the way.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
