Parc des Buttes-Chaumont: A Green Paradise Inside The Busy City of Paris

In the north-east of Paris, in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, is a huge public park called Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. It’s so big it is measured at around 25 hectares of land. It is the fifth largest public parks in the city of Paris.

One of it’s main attractions aside from the lush green grasses and beautiful lake, is the Temple de la Sibylle at the peak of the hill, and the small grotto with waterfalls.

Jogging and walking are one of the favorite activities here and the beautiful green grass all over the place is a picnic haven among locals.

A 63-meter-long suspension bridge, eight meters above the lake, allows access to the belvedere. The bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel, the creator of the Eiffel Tower.

The park boasts many varieties of indigenous and exotic trees (many of which are Asian species).
