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 raised promenades that give a fantastic view of the park. The mirrored "geode" globe is pretty cool too; I believe it's a cinema.

The park is a short walk from the metro and well worth the effort if the weather is good.

There are lots of open space as well as gardens and walks.

There are several restaurants both within the park and immediately outside.

I did not see a lot of indoor activities at the park so I could not recommend it for a rainy day but if the weather is dry it is definitely worth seeing.

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, fully open and free to the public. Signs at the park say it's for kids 8-14, but we saw little kids as well as full grown adults enjoying it. My kids (age 9 and 12) had a blast on the slide. It's quite long, high, and fast! The dragon slide is located in "Jardin du dragon" which is a playground that includes other general playground equipment. This is a great stop if the weather is good and your kids are looking for an outdoor break or a place to burn off some energy.

A few other notes: Bathrooms were locked in the off season (we came in September). This park is good paired with a visit to the Science Museum, which is in the park and right next to the dragon playground. There is also a playground for smaller kids, as well as a third play area that was closed off at the time.

great walk through the park and down the canalside from la villette to stalingrad.
watching the boats through the locks was good also.
nice plages set up either side of the canal with small cafes selling drinks at cheap prices.
a nice day out
