Batignolles, the huge green space in Paris

batignollesBatignolles is a very green space of Paris. This quarter has lots of places you can go if you love nature! From the big park dedicated to Martin Luther King to the flowers market. Here I want to explain why this district of Paris is so special, what you can do, where you can go and where to eat.

Even if Batignolles is not in the center of Paris, it is still a place to go to enjoy a local atmosphere and see unique attractions. Just think that you can admire the Palais de Justice designed by the italian archistar Renzo Piano. If you want to visit Batignolles, you can choose to go by metro line 14 or by bus.

Batignolles, where to go and what to do

batignolles parisIf, just like me, you love nature Batignolles is the place to be. Martin Luther King park is where you can do lots of activities. You can go there to relax or you can do sports. There are lots of scooter ramps! Plus, you can also explore educational gardens that are fascinating for both children and adults. I like this park because is perfect for every situation. If you are alone and you want to relax or learn something. Or, if you are with your children. It is perfect also if you are with your partner. In Parc Martin Luther King you can enjoy many paths with small waterfalls and caves. There is even a lake with swans!

If you want to go there, just note down that the opening hours are from 7 a.m. to 5.45 p.m. Plus, another useful information may be the full address: 147 rue Cardinet.

Once you have been there, you can continue your day going in the City of Flowers (Cité de Fleurs) or at the Batignolles Market. Here you can find flowers and lots of places where you can taste something or buy souvenirs or food to eat once you get home.

  • My Tips

     Take always small change with you! If you will need a public bathroom, you will probably pay 0.50 € to enter. 

     

    Remember that floor numbers aren't the same of U.S. ones. In Europe we have ground floor / floor 0. It is the corresponding of the 1st floor in U.S.!

     

     French people are nationalists: try to speak few French words. You will make them very happy!

     

     Check the weather forecast in advance so you will know what to put in your luggage!

     

     Even if they say it will be sunny all the time, take your umbrella with you anyway.

     

     Read my article about transports pass to know which one is the best for you!

     

     If you want to buy something very luxurious, go to Lafayette Galleries.

     

     Don't be worried about the need for a car in Paris. Taxis and Uber are a lot!

     

     For your safety, provide you a travel insurance
