I've been to Paris many times and have experienced all of the "Must Do" tourist items, some several times. So when I'm here I'm really out to find the Paris that most people, except those who live here, will actually never experience. This park is one of those.
It is off the beaten path from a Metro, RER or bus perspective. You have to want to get here. That in itself makes it an even more rewarding experience. It is located in one of the most geographically hilly areas of Paris. From the bottom of the part to the top it seems to rise at least 500 feet and at some points very, very steeply. This is not a park that is an easy walk for those who are out of shape or infirmed.
Many of the stairs and pathways seem to have been designed during the Gaudy era in the 20s. Stairs that are made to look like logs with landings that look like leaves. No straight lines and small water areas bubbling by.
The main paths take you around and though the park which is as diverse in its greenery and plantings as it is in the views that you experience. Head off the main paths into the many small and meandering dirt paths and really explore and experience the quiet beauty of this park.
