Why locals recommend it
There are a lot of hills and stairs, which is not very common in Paris. When you go up, it can be quite difficult, but when you go down, it’s quite nice! I go up and down, up and down—it’s fun! I usually start at the Colonel Fabien metro and run up rue Mathurin Moreau toward the park, then run clockwise. One lap is 2K. The view of Paris is really nice at the top near rue Botzaris, so it’s a great place to end a run. There are benches to use for leg extensions while looking out over Montmartre and Sacré-Coeur and all the Parisian rooftops. And the Buttes Chaumont metro is right there for your return home.

Amazing park with winding paths and a beautiful pergola atop the highest point that you can climb up to for a great view. Also two great bars/cafés with outdoor seating. Great place for joggers to run around the lake, and lots of nooks and crannies to discover. Also great for picnics, walks and free…

This English garden imitates a mountain landscape: rocks, cliffs, torrents, waterfalls, grotto, mountain pastures,…

An unexpected treasure in the city! Gorgeous views in a tranquil setting. Perfect for lounging in the grass with a good book. It's not a flat park so be prepared to walk up and down hills. There are cute surprises like a waterfall too.

10 min walk and you would have access to the most important park in the north of the city. The Buttes-Chaumont Park is green, with a vue and good restaurants. Perfect for sunrises and sunsets!

Cemetery
“The nearby Père Lachaise Cemetery, known widely as the place where Jim Morrison is buried, is filled with the tombs of so many famous people that it's best to get a map just before you enter so you will be sure to see everything you want to see.”
