La villette is difficult to describe... it's very modern, very new parisian, It's amazing for kids, playgrounds everywhere, huge slides, trampolines, a really cool cinema, a butterfly museum, but it's also nice for the nature areas, the bike rides... Plan to spend the whole afternoon there at least,…
Go see a movie outdoors. In summer in Paris (from July 17 to August 18 in 2019), you can go see beautiful movies on the lawns of La Villette. Very good atmosphere guaranteed. The movies begin at sunset, and I recommend going early, for a picnic for example.
Take a short (10 min) stroll along the canal d'Ourcq and you will arrive to La Villete park. A great area for picnic. It also contains the science museum and a 3D cinema La Geode.
“Great science museum where you can touch and test ! Also a great planetarium inside and a museum for small kids.”
“Very Parisian, can be crowded during holiday season. One of my favourite parks because it's not far and it's very green and natural compared to other parisian parks. You also get a pretty good view from the top.”
“The most recent concert hall built in Paris, with an astounding program, also suitable for kids”
“Have a drink/snack on a boat on the canal! Small budgets www.penicheantipode.fr/”
