Parc de Buttes Chaumont

Paris has many beautiful parks and gardens.

A couple of years ago, we took a week in May to visit Paris and London.  No trip would be complete without outdoor time — which often includes a park, arboretum or garden.  On this trip, we took a Metro ride to the 19th arondissement, to the Parc de Buttes Chaumont.

It was lovely — a mix of things to see and spaces to explore. Some manicured, some wild. Despite its large scale, each spot still felt small and intimate enough to enjoy.

Worth a visit!
