    Parc des Buttes Chaumont.

    Parc des Buttes Chaumont.

    This park is situated in the north-east of Paris. It is a nice place to go for a walk and take some unusual photographs. The park is in an old quarry and the share rock faces have been bridged with fanciful walkways. There is a nice lake too. On a precipice above the lake there is a greek looking building, that from afar looks quite picturesque. Unfortunately, if you look closer it is covered in graffiti.
    The number 7 metro line takes you to right outside the park (Buttes Chaumont), and across the road from the nearest park entrance to the station is a friendly local cafe. A Cafe Creme here is only FF17! This is the cheapest cup of latte I had in Paris and proves a hunch I had that prices are more expensive in the central city.

    Feeding the birds in the park

    Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a green paradise in the middle of a working class area of Paris. There's a temple, a suicide bridge, many fake rocks and fences, ducks and waterfalls - a great place for a walk or some jogging. See Must See Activities or my travelogue for more!

    Great view over Paris

    by Mique Written Oct 13, 2002

    This park has a great view over Paris. It is situated on quite a steep hill. So you might want to be catious about how you lay down on the grass. Luckily there is a fence at the bottom of the hill preventing the unwary to end up in the pond below.

    A Surprising Park: Parc de Buttes Chaumont

    This Park Is A Butte

    At the request of Napoleon III, Haussmann built this surprising park in 1867 in a “non-touristy” section of Paris. There is a striking butte, a lake, grottos, a waterfall, and a bridge named “Suicide Bridge.”

    The park, located in the 19th arrondissement, is bordered by rue Manin, rue de Crimée, and rue de Botzaris. The closest Metro is Buttes-Chaumont / Botzaris (with an entrance in the Art Nouveau style of Guimard). It is a great place to stroll, relax, and watch French families enjoying life.

    Park de Buttes Chamount – no tourists, quite, calm, very nice and clean. I fell asleep on the grass. I was not tired, just was walking around city and found this place. It is really wonderful. I would like to say thanks a lot to Ray (GUYON) who told me about this and many other beautiful places in Paris. His travel pages helped me a lot.

    Parc des Buttes Chaumont, not as famous as other parks in Paris, but equally beautiful. You can see some more at the travelogue.
