An Off-the-Beaten-Track Green Space
This small park in the Canal Saint-Martin area offers a respite from the bustling city. Among the many varieties of trees and flowers, you'll find a grassy space for sunbathing, a pond for birdwatching and a garden where veggies and flowers are cultivated.
The park was the former site of a convent and military hospital; today the only remnant is a stone gateway at the Rue des Récollets entrance.
