Parc des Buttes Chaumont




Parc des Buttes Chaumont


The first time I viewed this scene it seemed impossible that I was still in Paris, well within Boulevard Peripherique.  On this Sunday afternoon, the park was full of people enjoying a sunny afternoon of leisure.


(Put it on your list)

Know the spot well. This looks like one of those "follies" you see on English estates.

One of the most beautiful parks in Paris, certainly. I like that it is so hilly compared to the others... Lovely shot, Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Genie this is an amazing place. It's on my list. Is it far from central Paris. I would never have known it existed but for your blog. Thank you.

Brilliant image, Genie!

I've heard the name but had no idea it looked like this. Seeing your photo, I would never have picked this fantastical spot as being tucked away in Paris. Thanks, Genie ~ so good to know.

It reminds me of Central Park in NYC, but elevated.

What a lovely place.

Beautiful place! Hard to imagine that it is still in Paris! :)

Le belvedere de Sybille. Before the park, there was an old quarry of some kind, mainly used as a trash heap. Lovely place.

Beautiful, Genie! (Wish I was there having a picnic on the grass instead of eating my lunch at my desk.)
