    Lovely walk
    One of my favorite walk in Paris:) both as a parisian and tourist. It takes you from bois de vincennes to bastille through a very pleasant walk through the buildings and parks (its an old railway converted into a promenade). Which means that you can then access central Paris in no time. Once arrived in bastille, walk through the arsenal and you go to notre dame along the seine. Lovely :)

    Hidden gem 🌞
    Where the railway once was, its now a superb walking area for several km . On a hot day in Sept 2023 ( 33 ° C) it was a chill place to enjoy a "promenade" in the shadow. Clean, safe, well kept, nice flowers (even plenty of roses blooming in September!). Benches to sit down and relax. Many local joggers. Green heart of Paris, away from the hustle&bustle 🌿🌳🌹🌺

    Elevated Linear Park
    One of my favorite things to do in Paris is to take a long walk in this elevated park. It used to be a railroad line stretching out to the suburbs, long abandaoned, but then turned into a lovely linear park. It connects up with a couple of other much wider parks further east and one can walk all the way out to the Peripherique. Some clever planting along the way.

Gorgeous! If you've been to the High Line in NYC this feels similar. It's much smaller, but worthwhile to visit. Best time of year might be springtime.

We enjoyed an amble along the coulee verte as an alternative to busy sight seeing. Great street art, planting and a number of eateries just off the corridor

This is definitely off the beaten path, but since we've been to Paris many times, we wanted to explore new places away from the usual touristy spots. It is definitely not visited by tourists. Very calm and serene. Elevated from the busy Gare de Lyon area, the 45 pink brick archways blends into the background. Who knew how wonderful atop it is? It is such a great use of the old railway infrastructure.

We walked it several times during our stay. It is super shaded, so great for even a hot day. Lots of benches, fountains, sculptures, and flower gardens. You will also find restaurants and shops on the ground level. We walked all the way to the suspension bridge, then to the other end (at the Bastille Opera House)

The walkway even appears to "split buildings in half". Definitely think to take an afternoon to check it out.

What a great idea. A lovely peaceful and green way to spend a bit of time relaxing and seeing a part of Paris that you would not normally get to experience. They could improve the entrance and exit and both ends but there are signs. During our walk we found it popular with locals sitting/relaxing and a few joggers. Loved it.

In all of the years I’ve been coming to Paris, I’d never discovered this beautiful elevated walkway/park. It is landscaped, shaded, wide enough and has benches scattered throughout.
The only disappointment was the supposed artist studios on the street level. They were actually the workshops of crafts people making doors, lighting, furniture for homes and businesses and there weren’t that many. They didn’t offer interesting tours or objects to buy. But the walk? Lovely.

What a wonderful gift to the city especially Parisians in the 12th arrondissement and the Quinze-Vingts district. Certainly not a tourist hotspot by any means although this repurposed elevated train track MUST have provided inspiration to the creators of the popular Highline in New York City and Seoul Skypark - both defunct city infrastructure repurposed as contemporary public parks.

The ignominious entrance behind the Opera Bastille service entrance & carpark certainly does not befit such a lovely urban element. But once on top, the continuous aerial views of the surrounding neighborhoods are unique and another wonderful way to see the city. It is so relaxing and peaceful like a veritable oasis in the middle of a bustling metropolis.

Park users in the early morning are sparse, mostly confined to joggers and locals walking their pets. You may also encounter the odd homeless Parisian. It takes an hour to stroll leisurely through the entire length and it is never dull and actually quite photogenic. As a visitor to this amazing city, this would be so ideal for an early outing to collect thoughts before hitting the museums and galleries.
