In the summer this is like a beach with river swimming mixed with a kids' outdoor camp that includes adults. With activities like boat hire, water bikes, water zorbing, flying fox across the wide canal, table games and sand - it was like a nature's...More

This is one of the areas where all the factories were back in the day. Much of the land has been reclaimed and nice residences are being built. The canal is interesting.

I saw it on a winter afternoon, it was very nice. I guess in the summertime it must be perfect, expecially at night

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
