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.

  • A big and nice parc in Paris. A lot of activities to do doesn't matter if you're a child, an adult or a dog; you'll always find something to do. Crowded on Sundays and on sunny days (which in Autumn is weird and well appreciated in Paris). Nice for a picnic.

  • Every time we visit Paris we discover something we'd never heard of that completely blows our minds and leaves us hungry to return for more. This year's surprise discovery was La Villette. If La Villette isn't the greatest family-friendly public park in the world, I'd like to know what is. We have two children aged 8 and 10 and there aren't a lot of parks that cater to their interests. La Villette is loaded with fun and interesting attractions for families: there's an unusual and fun play area with ramps, windmills and kid-sized hamster wheels; a giant dragon slide; a big canal with boats; a massive IMAX theater that looks like a giant disco ball on the grass; a submarine you can visit; lovely garden terraces that serve drinks and munchies. This just scratches the surface because we didn't have time to see the science museum or the Philharmonic, which I've heard has a terriific rooftop terrace with views. It's hard to compare La Villette to any other parks I've been to. It's a bit reminiscent of the Seattle Center, but with much more green space, a lot more activity, and a cool canal running through the center of it. The best thing about La Villette is that it seems there are hardly any tourists here. This is where real Parisians come at the weekend to pass a lovely Saturday with their family. You get a better feel for the authentic Paris here than you will at any of the "top ten must-see tourist attractions".

  • Lots of things to do in this huge park. Children's play areas. Large picnic areas. There is also a barge on the Canal which can be used for an enjoyable trip to visit the surrounding sights. Great idea on a warm day for cooling off.

  • Beautiful Park & Beautiful nature. People whom are seeking for peace, should visit this place, appropriate to do yoga. There is a Garden for yoga people. Wish i can visit this place again in the future.

  • Nice place. Expensive though. Great place for families
