This park was builded by Napoleon in 1867. If you are fond of walking you have to come to this place. This is the green long of the city. At the top you have a fantastic view!

This is a beautiful park! A metro stop places you just outside the entrance and you can explore it in peace and safety. (I write this in case you're concerned about the neighborhood not being as nice as elsewhere in Paris. Don't worry about it...More

A major park building in the 19th Century on the site of a stone quarry, it tumbles down hillsides, into valleys, with a lake, some little boats, a cavern and a couple of curious buildings. Popular, pretty.

Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a charming Paris Park with a lake, suspension bridge, architectural features and lush gardens. Bicycles, pedestrian traffic, lots of joggers seems to be a regular circuit. Great people watching and picnic opportunity.

At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local

population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one

Hi Viktor, If you're facing the lake and the Mairie de 19eme entrace is behind you, just start walking to your left around the lake and you should find it. Hope this helps! Enjoy Paris :)
