This path along the old railway line from Bastille to Vincennes features an elevated section with shrubs and flowers, a bridge over a popular park, some interesting tunnels and a wooded section towards the end. Clearly very popular with locals and joggers, it will be very attractive in a few weeks' time when the roses and shrubs are in full... More

After visiting the Coulée Vert on our way home from the Marché Aligre, I decided to run from our apartment near the Pont Neuf to this old raised railroad that's been turned into a lovely strolling park. I set out running on the south side of the Seine and headed to a point just south south-west of the Bastille on... More

This should include the Promenade Plantee, an elevated park built on a reclaimed railway, plus its extension through many parks. Great way to see a major part of the city and enjoy lots of green space, well-used by Parisians.

Had heard about this elevated garden for years but yesterday was the first time I was able to visit it. Despite being winter, the garden walk was absolutely lovely. Cannot wait to visit it again in warmer weather when the plants and flowers are blooming.

The raised walkway takes you above the traffic and into a calm, green space as you stroll east from Bastille to Bois de Vincennes. We walked back at street level passed the shops/workshops in the arches below the old railway line. Nice way to spend an afternoon. Lots of local joggers out and office staff having their lunch so gets... More

We strolled along part of the walkway late on a February afternoon and found it was every bit as nice as during the summer.

Nice place to walk and just be away from the hustle, with not a lot of tourists. Went there on a weekend and mostly joggers and families with small children walking. A beautiful example of creative urban planning in Paris.

A real discovery! Have visited Paris many times but did not know about this lovely walk! The sky was blue, the sun shining - the perfect day for a Winter walk amongst Paris rooftops. I started from the outer end and walked in, as I wanted to end up at the Bastille - a nice long walk. Highly recommend if... More

This was a pleasant surprise. I think it's better than the NY Highline: it's not commercialized, no tourists, very pretty walkway that doesn't seem very contrived. And as a bonus, the craft shops directly underneath the walkway are very nice to check out once you exit off the stairway.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks.
