We decided to get off the beaten track of the centre of Paris and headed over to the park des Buttes Chaumont for the next edition our Les enfants a Paris playdate with children’s fashion photographer Emily Kornya.
Set high up in Belleville and often missed by weekenders keen not to stray too far from the tourist loop, this 19th arrondissement gem is one of the city’s most magical hotspots.
It feels like a place to run wild in, to play games and go adventuring. There’s rocks, waterfalls, a temple …. And one big difference in the Park des Buttes Chaumont as opposed to some other French parks is that lolling on the grass is not forbidden.
The park is open everyday, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. during summer / until 9 p.m. in winter.
The children loved climbing on the rocks around the temple, which I’ll admit made me nervous (and which is probably why it was so much fun) but I believe it’s time for a gouter now?!

A warm and cosy puffy coat is an essential piece for the winter months. Time to go home now Juliane must have thought! See you next time!
