Parc de la Villette

Built on the site of former abattoirs and designed by the architect Bernard Tschumi, the Parc de la Villette is the largest urban cultural park in the capital. 55 hectares of park, of which 35 are open-air, mix nature and modern architecture, playgrounds and activity areas for children and adults, cultural spaces and theatres. Open from 6am to 1am, the park is accessible by metro, bus, foot, bicycle and even boat. Visitors can stroll along the canal de l'Ourcq where there are a number of green spaces, ponds and fountains. There are also numerous cultural attractions such as the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, the Géode, the Zénith de Paris, the Musée de la Musique, the Philharmonie de Paris... Every year, exceptional events are organized here, like the open-air film festival, which is held from mid-July to mid-August.
