Paul Mistral Park is an urban park located in Grenoble. It is 67 acres and it holds important sportive facilities and the city hall. Placed inside an old military engineering ground, it was created thanks to the International Exhibition of Hydropower and Tourism which took place in 1925.HistoryIn 1836, after the general Haxo achieved to build the city's ramparts, the current area of the park is used as a military engineering place outside the town for shooting training. So, this area is reserved for the military needs only and none building is allowed. At this location was also the door, one of the five city's gates, the door of the Alpes ("Porte des Alpes" in French) which allowed people to go to Eybens or Vizille.The 1925 exhibitionIn 1919, an ambitious mayor, Paul Mistral wished to open the city by destroying the Haxo ramparts. From 1921, thanks to the economic rising due to the use of hydropower, he planned to organize in Grenoble an international exhibition about hydropower and tourism. However, a such exhibition needed a vast ground near the city center and implied to destroy the southern ramparts.Once the ramparts destroyed, the military engineering ground could be used and the new Alpes boulevard (became Jean Pain boulevard since 1944) is created at the North. The Eybens avenue is straighten up to go along the West side of the exhibition site.

  • Pretty, well maintained. Although we were in the evening in the Park was to lots of people. The family piknikujące on the grass, reveling in a variety of games. Very good place for moments of relaxation with sightseeing in Grenoble.

  • Nice from time to time, especially to escape a moment the traffic and noise of Grenoble. There is a mini golf course, fun activities summer for children, and the coil, which is a very nice place. On the other hand, to avoid game days and especially, especially, never the night! If you do not know Grenoble, go there if you have the time but made not an essential step. Rather enjoy the many mountains around that are really worth the detour ;)

  • At noon, and from 17:00 to 19:00, atmosphere is unbreathable because of traffic and especially the endless traffic jams. The days of rain boots because of the mud, the rest of the time the market causes dust. The Perret Tower in finished not to fall in ruins. The days of match at the stadium of the Alps, impossible to access.

  • Beautiful park in the middle of Grenoble. Nice to play games and do picnic
  • The biggest and the most beautiful Parc nearly located in the city centre...
  • Good place in the middle of city. A lot of activities during summer break
  • This is the place to hangout with your friends. Nice area,cool pubs and good vibes
  • It is OK, but I do not like the tower and the city-hall looks quite old.
