“A wonderful park by the river where you can go for a walk or a sunbathing picnic. Popular with the local community and somewhat of a hidden jewel from the more touristy parks in the City of Lights. A pleasant 10 min walk down rue Saint Charles.”

Garden
“This is a hidden park on top of the Montparnasse train station. Most Parisians don't even know it exists! Enter the train station, find track 1 - 2. There's a metal staircase to the left. Take it all the way up until you're on top of the train station. It's a great picnic spot, lovely grass planes. There's also a museum of the Résistance there.”

“The park is like 10 min walking distance from the flat, absolutely out of the typical tourist trail, and is just such a cute park with playgrounds for the children, large open areas for picnicking, a vineyard and a bee-hive, majestic trees for some shading and a central area for concerts and exercising.”

“The old railways around Paris are mostly not accessible. But this little section between the Park Georges Brassens and Metro Station Balard is open for public. The old rails are still there but it's transformed into a high line kind of walk way. Full of urban art and regional birds - I even saw a lizard once”
