The whole area (and it is pretty big) is supposed to be a park. Yet, there's too few green areas and too many buildings and concrete and asphalt. Built around a couple of multipurpose halls, this is a place that screams "lack of heart". While...More

This place is huge and clearly the general design of the area has been planned not just accidentally evolved. It's only that the planning has been catastrophically bad. There are tens of kilometers of paths with very strange routes and no written or visual hint...More

This is a really interesting modern park with unique designs and a futuristic layout! It's a massive cultural center with a science museum, a dance center, concert venues, and the like. There's over 25 buildings, promenades, covered walkways, bridges, and landscaped gardens. I love the...More

There are conflicting reviews about the dragon slide. Some older reviews indicate the dragon slide has been dismantled, but as of our visit in September 2017, the old dragon slide has since been replaced with a new slide. I've attached pictures of the new structure,...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
