Parc de la Villette

Interesting
Designed by Bernard Tschumi, this vast park stretches from the Cité des Sciences to the Cité de la Musique and is a succession of thematic gardens, of meadows open for play, of folies (little red pavilions). It is crossed by two covered galleries, and includes ten gardens prepared for games (Winds, Dunes, and childish Terrors), a bamboo garden, the Grande Halle de la Villette (shows), and the Zénith where rock and variety stars can have an audience of up to 6 400.
