On a recent visit to New York's High Line, we were fortunate to meet a Parisian family who informed us that Paris has its own version of the High Line ~ Promenade Plantee in the 12th. We added it to our list of things to do and are happy we did. It is a great concept and creates a nice retreat from the streets below. It offers nearly 3 miles of elevated green space on top of the old railway line. It predates New York's High Line by close to 20 years and therefore benefits from trees and growth that provide shade on hot days. If you get hungry while visiting you can enjoy a fresh salad and tasty sandwich at Les Artisans, 14 Avenue Daumesnil.
