Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
Opened in 1867, this park was built by Jean-Charles Alphand who designed a number of parks during the reign of Napoleon III. Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is spread over 24.7 hectares (61.03 acres) and features an artificial lake, a rocky island, exotic trees, bridges, waterfalls and a grotto. The most significant part of the park is the Temple de la Sibylle which is a scaled-down replica of the iconic Roman Temple of Vesta. The public park also has restaurants, puppet theaters and other facilities making it very popular among locals and tourists alike. A stroll through the historic Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is definitely worthwhile.
This place is beautiful even in the dead of winter. It is free and there is a little hill you can climb. At the top there is almost a type of gazebo (very romantic) which holds lovely view of Paris.. best part--free. This is basically a park. I would 100% go there again. There is also a waterfall but, during the winter it is turned off.
Go there-- you will not regret it!
Baron Hausmann turned a rugged limestone quarry into one of the most beautiful parks in Paris; scenic walks, a waterfall, and a Greek temple "folly" are among its pleasures. A perfect place for a sack lunch on a sunny day.
