Bassin de La Villette

At 800 metres long and 70 metres wide, the Bassin de la Villette is the biggest artificial stretch of water in Paris linking the canal de l’Ourcq to the canal Saint-Martin and thus developing fluvial transport. Numerous cultural activities (shows, concerts, theatre productions) make this canal basin a festive place, very popular with Parisians.
