Climb to the top of the hill and overlook the north of Paris, with Montmartre before you. Walk over a suspension bridge to reach a decorative temple, which sits atop a steep cliff. The park has a waterfall fed by a natural spring deep underground, which flows into a lake.

  • We came across this park by accident one very cold March day (see picture!), and were delighted with it. You could see it would be wonderful in the summer, but even in wintry conditions it was a joy t...  more »
  • The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is a beautiful place, very large, with beautiful gardens and a pond with swans, is in the 19 Arrondissement and is frequented by the French. Although I have visited in the winter, I loved it and I can only imagine how it must be wonderful in the spring. It's a place worth visiting, to walk, read, or just sit and enjoy.

  • Even if it is a bit far, nearly an hour of metro to the Eiffel Tower, this park is worth in my opinion. After visiting several museums, churches etc etc. This Park disconnects you completely! A true haven of peace! He is a former quarry transformed into the Park over the years.. .in fact there is no trace of the career! :) a day sunny, to pick up and relax, it's perfect! You'll see overweight!

  • PROS: Perfect place to have a picnic, do sports, walk in nature, rest at the cafe/night club. Has beautiful views. A lot of hills so hard to find a plain place but still good to seat on the grass. CONS: one bio toilet for the huge perimeter of the park and it's always dirty...There are no direction in the park to find this place also
  • The perfect escape from the city for a few hours. Lots of grass for picnics and relaxing. The hills make it different from the standard parks in Paris.
  • An heaven on the earth. So beautiful, so pretty, so big. A fusion between you and the nature in the heart of Paris
  • One of the best ever (for me the best INTRA-MUROS Park) when you are inside, you don't feel living In town. Lot of people in summer #sunbath you can come with childs (river) and even put your bathsuit. In summer time it s open 24/24
  • Beautiful park in Paris. You cannot miss it if you’re in the city! Even as a tourist, you can buy some bread, cheese and wine and sit on the grass in one of the many hills and watch as the sun sets.
