  • We tested the ballad of the green flow and we enjoyed this peaceful moment in the heart of the 12th. Accessible to bicycles and walkers, this walk allows us to discover this district from several points of view: alternating tunnels, viaducts and more natural sections, views of the Haussmanian buildings. It's a must! Fountain of sparkling water in reuilly garden. Top with kids!

  • Great idea to have built this old railway. These are now several kilometers of greenery and pleasant walks that cross the 12th arrondissement to Bastille, offering in places beautiful views.

  • If you're in the 12th, you have to walk at least a part of this park. It's a wonderful path through the southeastern part of the city. Beautifully maintained, it's full of greenery and flowers. Though a lot of people use it as a jogging path, it's intended for people who just want to walk and enjoy it. We went all the way to the end, and it was really fun.
  • A famous elevated walkway stretching about 2 km or more depending when you end your walk. Passing through beautiful paths full of flowers and also bamboo ( in one part). Theres a long stretch of rectangle green lake in the middle. At some parts kind of cuts thru buildings. A favourite with Parisian joggers and of course tourists.
