The High Line in New York is rightly popular, the Coulee Vert in Paris is less well known, but was created some years before the US counterpart. Approximately three miles long and also based on an old rail route, it commences about 500 metres from...More

Paris in spring! This viaduct is a great hidden gem. I loved the beautiful plants and flowers. The walk is easy once you ascend the steps, and offer secret pleasure as it takes you above the city streets into a verdant space.

What a wonderful idea, to change this old railway line into a beautiful, peaceful planted walkway! It was fascinating to view both the plants and trees on the walkway and the flats and apartments beside the path. We used the stairs near the opera Bastille...More

Great elevated garden walkway from Bastille to Place Doree. Really better known as the Promenade des Plantes. Somewhat off the beaten track but a Parisian secret for jogging, strolling, flaneurring. Lots of different plants, elevations, seating etc. Very well done and maintained. Not as glitzy...More

What a beautiful place to walk and escape from the crowds and the noise. Very peaceful and beautiful. You wouldn't think that a train trestle could hold an entire park, but it really does! Trees, flowers, and even a duck pond. Well worth the trip.

Paris has had this elevated park on an abandoned raised railway track for over 20 years - but not many tourists knew about it. We had a wonderful walk in the May sunshine, starting from Bastille tube station. For a short bit you walk along...More

Beautiful raised walkway in Paris. It's a nice quiet place with few tourists. Landscaping is amazing. Only walked about 1/2 way to Reuilly - Paul Pernin Garden which was also very nice.

A very long walking trail and garden built along the path of the old railroad. Part of it is above street level. It also passes through a number of large gardens. Walk all the way to the city's edge!

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

It ends in a park - Jardin de Reuilly. There are two stations not too far from it - Montgallet and Dugommier
