Why locals love it

This garden is not particularly touristy, and thanks to its generous size, you can easily find an intimate spot. You'll become a child again here, discovering the garden’s hidden mysteries. Lots of runners and sportsmen train here. It’s a nice picnic spot from spring onwards. For those with children – there’s a puppet theatre, a playground, swings…

Why you should visit it

Need a break from city life? Come here! For me, it’s the most pleasant park in Paris and also the most original. With its cascade, grotto and rocky peak, its suspended bridge above the lake, and its belvedere giving a panoramic view of Paris, it’s definitely not to be missed! Visit the Belleville and Ménilmontant quartiers while you’re in the area.

Special tip

Head to the "Rosa bonheur" bistro-bar inside the park for a drink and some tapas – it stays open until midnight, even when the park is closed.
