Park
“An unexpected treasure in the city! Gorgeous views in a tranquil setting. Perfect for lounging in the grass with a good book. It's not a flat park so be prepared to walk up and down hills. There are cute surprises like a waterfall too.”

Neighbourhood
“The most beautiful park in Paris... Beware, you'll have to climb to deserve it. In the summertime, you'll most likely step into open electro parties at the Kiosque à Musique. Otherwise, inside of the parc, fetch the Rosa Bonheur (joyful bistro) or Pavillon Puebla (trendy bistro).”
