In the 15th arrondissement, south of Paris, Georges Brassens Park (Georges Brassens was a famous French singer who lived nearby the park : rue des Morillons) is both a pictureresque and modern public garden in which strolling around is very pleasant.
Built on the site of former slaughterhouses, it has kept the huge doors of the ancient horse market, the auction lodge and the clock tower. You will also discover while walking an apiary, that organized every october a “Honey Party”, a vine-yard, a river that crossed the park, many lawns, a central pond or a perfume garden. What else?
As many main parisian parks, Georges Brassens is ideal too for getting a tan, reading or simply having drinks. And if adults will enjoy the quiet atmosphere surrounded by those remains, Georges Brassens public garden is also made for children since there are swings, play area, merry-go-round, table-tennis and even poney walks (only on week-end and public holidays).
Lastly, for book lovers in search of good deals, note that every saturday an ancient-and-secondhand-book market takes places rue Briançon (english and foreign languages available).
