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 is a super park where you can make a picnic and relax. It is huge and you have also a bar restaurant.

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.

It was nice to visit a park that wasn’t full of tourists and really only locals there. Sadly I didn’t get to walk around the entire park and climb up to the top as I had been walking all days and my legs were done...More

I was staying in a house swap in Belleville, in the Northeast of Paris, and had heard about the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. So I went to visit it. It was a wonderful green oasis, totally charming, and filled with young and old enjoying the...More

It's amazing what you can do with a few old gypsum and limestone quarries. Photographs of this area in the olden days make it look like the far side of the moon (not in a good way) and we have Napoleon III to thank for...More

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 :)
