This park is said to be the third largest park in Paris. It serves as a cultural center for kids as it is filled with play areas, a science museum, a music complex and a 3D theatre. The best thing about this 130-acre park is its design. According to history, the concept of this park was made by a famous modern architect named Bernard Tschumi. He combined a large green space with some funky sculptures and some children’s games to form a unique playground for kids. For adults, ample spaces are available to relax and enjoy a picnic. In fact, the lawn space is often used by samba bands and soccer players for rehearsal. Come in summer and you can attend some of the outdoor festivals that are held in this park. For instance, free open-air cinema is a common event in summer.

  • Nice place for hanging out with our 18m kid. We came by car from the other side of Paris, we parked in the underground parking near the auditorium. It's quite expensive but it is hard to find a parking on the surrounding streets, even on Sunday. First we had a walk in the park just across the canal, discovering some nice scientific and artistic instalments. The playground with the dragon seems fun, but it is still too complex for our kid. We ate pizza in a nearby restaurant, the place was nice and kid's friendly. The other play area, with entrance and fences, provides entertainment for kids of all ages. It is stimulating and funny, we all had a good time.

  • A special bit of late 20th century design which has evolved a little over the years. Off the main Paris tourist trail and worth a visit. We went on a cold, snowy February day - I bet it’s stunning in summer.

  • It's a very nice park for the entire family, kids and adults alike. There are nice games, philharmonie, Europe's largest science museum and lots of other activities in the park. Even the walk is worth the visit. If you include the science museum, make it a complete day for the place to explore well.

  • We did the science museum right there. It was a great way to explore Physics, Maths, Chemistry and Biology even for 18 years old. You can try out many things on your own and it is a lot of fun. Learning by doing!

  • A wonderful place to chill out and forget the grey city life. There are always a couple of expositions in the park and even on the fences around the park (exemple in the photos below). I definitely advise everyone to at least take a stroll through this beautiful green park.
