Park Buttes-Chaumont

Local name: Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

The Buttes-Chaumont Park is located in the northeast of Paris. It is a landscape park located on the hills. You can admire many species of ornamental trees and shrubs, such as Lebanese cedar, Himalayan cedar, Ginkgo biloba and bamboo. On the top of the hill there is the Roman-style Temple of the Sibyls. There is also an artificial waterfall and a grotto as well as two picturesque bridges.

The decision to organize the park was issued by Napoleon III, when the quarries existing here were incorporated into Paris. Its design was dealt with by the author of the Paris expansion project, Georges Haussmann. It is an English-style park that looks completely natural. The varied terrain adds a picturesque touch.

The focal point of the park is the Sibyl Temple standing on a hill above an artificial lake. The hill can be reached by two suspension and stone bridges. Hanging was designed by Gustav Eiffel. Park Buttes-Chaumont is a place of walks and picnics liked by Parisians.
