After Dark

Just outside our loft.

Sacré Coer de Montmarte

Not only did we go to the highest park today, but also the highest point in the city (aka we walked up a lot of stairs/hills).

This is what I looked like after that flight.

Getting to the top was totally worth it though.

The detail in the Montmarte was magnificent!

And the view wasn’t too shabby either.

The park, Buttes Chaumont, is quite large. Here is the view from the gazebo at the highest point:

There many open green spaces. This area reminded us of the hill at Barton Springs:

Some areas of the park were under construction. The others were populated with people from all walks of life.

Parc de Belleville is the highest park in Paris. This park has a lot of character from the wooden playhouses, ping pong tables to the plush lawn.

We kept spotting kitties in this park.

We tried to wake up early today. Finding a location for our wedding was atop our agenda. We chose a few parks to scout, ate our breakfast, and were on our way!

Our first stop was La Promenade Planteé. It’s an old railroad track converted to gardens located 30 ft above street-level in a populated area of Paris.

It’s very nice but seems to serve as a trail for the locals. We saw many people running in exercise outfits and others eating lunch on benches.

The narrow walkway is lined with a variety of flowers. It appears well-kept. Every 100 yards or so you’ll pass under an archway. They appear quite nice wrapped with vines.

At one end of the trail there is a large green space where people participate in park activities.
