This is a really interesting modern park with unique designs and a futuristic layout! It's a massive cultural center with a science museum, a dance center, concert venues, and the like. There's over 25 buildings, promenades, covered walkways, bridges, and landscaped gardens. I love the...More

The park is a short walk from the metro and well worth the effort if the weather is good. There are lots of open space as well as gardens and walks. There are several restaurants both within the park and immediately outside. I did not...More

There are conflicting reviews about the dragon slide. Some older reviews indicate the dragon slide has been dismantled, but as of our visit in September 2017, the old dragon slide has since been replaced with a new slide. I've attached pictures of the new structure,...More

This is an OK park with a magnificent mirror-dome. Unfortunately, it is located too far away from the center of town.

The parc de la villette is ok. The museum visit is a timed entry, with visits for 4-7 and 5-12 years. The timed entry means one enters with 200+ families with their kids to see 10 interactive visits. It was not managed, and chaotic. We...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
