Parc des Buttes Chaumont Tips (21)

Buttes Chaumont

I try to run at least 3 times a week. Buttes Chaumont provides the perfect environment for me to get a solid work out. There are tons of paths that weave in and out of this magnificent park. Buttes Chaumont was orginially a rock quarry, but was converted into a park with a lake in the early 1900s.

Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont

Buttes Chaumont is wonderful to visit, whether it be the winter or summer. Locals love to take afternoon strolls through the park. Parisiennes also love to stay in shape by taking a jog or practicing martial arts here.

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.

Le Parc des Buttes Chaumont

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

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

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.
