The Parc de la Villette is the third-largest park in Paris, 55.5 hectares in area, located at the northeastern edge of the city in the 19th arrondissement. The park houses one of the largest concentration of cultural venues in Paris, including the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie (City of Science and Industry, Europe's largest science museum), three major concert venues, and the prestigious Conservatoire de Paris. Parc de la Villette is served by Paris Métro stations Corentin Cariou on Line 7 and Porte de Pantin on Line 5.

    Very impressive modern park with many permanent and temporary activities and events. During sunny days kids will enjoy the open air attractions while adults can seat on the grass or across canal. You can rent electric boat on the canal. In a rainy day then you can go to exhibitions, mall or to the cinema. There is even an equestrian center to ride horses. Half day if good to go all around. If you have time visit the submarine located in the center.

    A big and nice parc in Paris. A lot of activities to do doesn't matter if you're a child, an adult or a dog; you'll always find something to do. Crowded on Sundays and on sunny days (which in Autumn is weird and well appreciated in Paris). Nice for a picnic.

    Every time we visit Paris we discover something we'd never heard of that completely blows our minds and leaves us hungry to return for more. This year's surprise discovery was La Villette. If La Villette isn't the greatest family-friendly public park in the world, I'd like to know what is. We have two children aged 8 and 10 and there aren't a lot of parks that cater to their interests. La Villette is loaded with fun and interesting attractions for families: there's an unusual and fun play area with ramps, windmills and kid-sized hamster wheels; a giant dragon slide; a big canal with boats; a massive IMAX theater that looks like a giant disco ball on the grass; a submarine you can visit; lovely garden terraces that serve drinks and munchies. This just scratches the surface because we didn't have time to see the science museum or the Philharmonic, which I've heard has a terriific rooftop terrace with views. It's hard to compare La Villette to any other parks I've been to. It's a bit reminiscent of the Seattle Center, but with much more green space, a lot more activity, and a cool canal running through the center of it. The best thing about La Villette is that it seems there are hardly any tourists here. This is where real Parisians come at the weekend to pass a lovely Saturday with their family. You get a better feel for the authentic Paris here than you will at any of the "top ten must-see tourist attractions".

    Lots of things to do in this huge park. Children's play areas. Large picnic areas. There is also a barge on the Canal which can be used for an enjoyable trip to visit the surrounding sights. Great idea on a warm day for cooling off.
