The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighbourhood.

Nice place to walk and talk or run. Many nice streets and places can be seen from above and there is a lot of greenery. Go here if you need to wind down and relax. Near the beginning there are also stairs which lead to an outdoor training area. Keep in mind that It closes in the evening like most Parisian parks.

Went here in a Sunday morning just to see what’s up, but got to walk almost the entire path. Many people use it to do their weekly work-out and run. Pleasant views om the buildings and great cover from the plants, especially the bamboo is impressive.

We found out about La Promenade Plantée by chance it turned out to be a lucky find. Strolling above the streets of Paris and enjoying all the plants was a delight. We began at the Bastille end planning to walk the full 4.8km but were disappointed to find the last section was closed off. Still, we had enjoyed it so much we turned around and walked back to the beginning and rewarded ourselves with café and patisserie when we had finished.

An absolute pleasure to get out of the city while in the city

Coulee Verte Rene-Dumont is an elevated walkway in the city. We took a detour while wandering the streets and found ourselves in this walkway purely by chance. However we did not have much free time so only spent a short time there. It is quite a great way to get out of the heavy traffic and noise. Perhaps we will return another time.

An escape from the busy Paris streets, this former overground tram line has been transformed into a very nice walkway with lots of green and nice views over the streets of Paris and sometimes even into apartments. If you have seen everything else, this is a nice alternative on a sunny day and can take you all the way from the Place de la Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes.

New Yorkers who love the new High Line should visit the original High Line in Paris. It's much older and more sophisticated design. Designed as a series of 'Rooms' with different floral plantings. each one different from the next.
A little hard to find, but located behind the new Modern Opera near the Place de la Bastille, where there's a set of steps up a very plain facade - but what a great experience lies beyond. At street level there are a number of unique stores built under the arches which support the former railroad bed. Great at sunset too.

Over the years, as we’ve had short visits to Paris, we’ve always planned for ‘the big one’ - the visit when we could finally do a lot of things on our ‘One Day in Paris’ list. Finally, on a chilly but sunny day we walked out to Place de la Bastille, and just a wee bit further to reach the Coulee Verte / Promenade Plantee / Greenway, an elevated park on the top of an old railway viaduct. The park was inaugurated in 1993 and until New York’s High Line park opened in 2009, it was the only elevated park in the world. What a fabulous walk we had - no scooters or bikes and only a couple of joggers. We did a couple of kms (the walk totals 4.7 km if you go right to the end) and then did a u-turn and came back part of the way before taking the stairs down to street level and walking along the Viaduc des Arts.

Although this one was earlier made, the New York's High line is more famous. The Paris' one is set south of Bastille sq.
This gardened path runs along a disused railway line for few km, and is a pleasant elevated walk through a residential area.

Certainly worth doing when you are staying in the neighbourhood. Gives you the opportunity to have a walk away from the busy streets, but still in the middle of town.
