This is one of the most beautiful and amazing parks in Paris. It was designed by Baron Haussmann and Napoleon III from the what was once quarries and a desolate dump. There are hills and paths and a wonderful cascading waterfall. On the highest hill...More

This was just down the road from where we were staying and it was incredible, didn’t expect to find it we were just exploring the local area to where we were, spent a good few hours here just walking around taking some great pictures.

This is a beautiful park! A metro stop places you just outside the entrance and you can explore it in peace and safety. (I write this in case you're concerned about the neighborhood not being as nice as elsewhere in Paris. Don't worry about it...More

A major park building in the 19th Century on the site of a stone quarry, it tumbles down hillsides, into valleys, with a lake, some little boats, a cavern and a couple of curious buildings. Popular, pretty.

Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a charming Paris Park with a lake, suspension bridge, architectural features and lush gardens. Bicycles, pedestrian traffic, lots of joggers seems to be a regular circuit. Great people watching and picnic opportunity.

It’s just a park, but you get the feeling the landscaper ran amuck. There is a hill in the middle, a gorge, bridges, a lake and a fabulous air of extremism. Lovely and quiet but fight in the middle of metropolitan Paris. It is a...More

Super lovely park, with something for people of all ages and tastes - running trails, playgrounds, bars, restaurants, picnic areas, exercise station, etc. Feels like a retreat getaway from the bustling city, yet steps away from it all.

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one

No it is not! Çan't believe those who said yes. Last year I got a Velib at the metro and rode over. Signs clearly say No Bicycles (in French)

Hi Viktor, If you're facing the lake and the Mairie de 19eme entrace is behind you, just start walking to your left around the lake and you should find it. Hope this helps! Enjoy Paris :)
