Parc De La Villette - Review
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.

Parc De La Villette, Paris Reviews
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.
Visited this park in June 2018. Last visit was over 20 years ago. The park is certainly well maintained and a wonderful place for a family’s day out! Follies, red structures spread out in the park looks great with diverse activities and services available from my last visit. A must place if u are in Paris. You can also see Paris Philharmonic at the Park too!
I've been to this park on 3rd September in the evening. The lighting was so bed, that even if I stepped deep into the park I didnt realise that, and I went with the intention to explore that park. I was walking down the path deep into the park but only the path was under the lights, and I didn't see any green surfaces or roads in them.
This place is awesome! There are seriously so many things to do! I appreciated the shaded path along the water. Great place for kids, too! I highly recommend checking it out.
I enjoyed walking in this large park with unusually designed red building, strange huge structure resembling disassembled bike...
