des Buttes Chaumont 19th
a brisk 15-20 minute walk away from our apartment is the Parc des Buttes
Chaumont. The park was built in the 1860's during Baron Haussmann's
famous transformation of the city. It features a lake, mock Roman ruins,
and very lush vegetation. It is quite a refreshing escape from the hustle
and bustle of the city. We saw many Parisians (and their dogs) enjoying
the beautiful morning with an invigorating jog around the park.
