Covering 55 hectares, the Parc de la Villette is the largest landscaped green space in Paris. The park is brimming with attractions, including children’s playgrounds and the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (Museum of Science and Technology). The park is also home to the Géode IMAX theater, the Zénith de Paris performance venue, and the Philharmonie de Paris concert halls. An outdoor film festival takes place in the park from mid-July to mid-August.
Garden lovers will appreciate the park’s variety of themed gardens, featuring paths and footbridges. The area around the Canal de l’Ourcq is embellished with ponds and fountains.
