A charming green space
The Buttes-Chaumont is quite charming. It is one of the largest green spaces in Paris, with a total surface area of 62 acres. Its particularity is a 30-metre height difference, which in some places offers a spectacular view over several Parisian neighbourhoods, such as Montmartre.
The paths converge towards the lower part of the Buttes Chaumont, and the lake with a surface area of 3.7 acres, that is fed by three different streams. At its centre, the Île du Belvédère and its gazebo, known as the Temple de la Sybille, dates back to 1869. Visitors can access it via a hanging footbridge or a bridge.
At the water’s edge, moorhens and ducks will entertain children. There are other fun things for them too in the Buttes Chaumont: a puppet theatre, swings and playgrounds, merry-go-rounds, pony rides, and more. One particularly nice activity is a family picnic on the lawn when the weather is nice.
