To the casual observer, this park is largely a section of canal and some boat docks. For those interested in the history of the Bastille, this park is more interesting because a section of the old moat wall can be seen here.

At some maps this might look like a park. It’s more of a walking streak along the water and boats with a couple of smaller playgrounds

Some pleasure boats are anchored here and there are some pleasant cafes with views of the water. This is where the Canal St. Martin cruises end. Lovely in warm weather.

Great place to include in your visit to Place de la Bastille. Waterfront with bridges and stairs down to a green patch surrounded by flowers, with a great view of the boats.

A boat marina in Paris? Really? That's how friends respond to my enthusiasm. You can walk along and look at the boats, in which people are living. There are parks along the sides of the marina, and a restaurant (Le Grand Bleu). I once considered...More

After visiting Place de la Bastille, we walked down the boulevard to explore the area. Finding this marina was a nice surprise. It's a perfect spot for a stroll on a sunny day. Quite sheltered and peaceful. Many pretty boats moored there. I think there's...More

For those contemplating bringing there boat to Paris I would highly recommend either La Villette or the Arsenal. Both marinas have the same management and we felt the prices were in line with the location and the amenities. The staff at the Arsenal went out...More

We loved the atmosphere at this harbour close to Bastille. It feels like a hidden gem as there are not a lot of people/tourists. We enjoyed some drinks on the terrace. A good place for having a calm break during your stay. Highly recommended.

A calm place; especially if one have exhausted by too many museums and other such usual heritage sites of Paris.

An unusual place off the Seine with many different types of boats moored up. Lovely to see all the old fashioned wooden ones too. Cobbles to walk on and a little graffiti around but quite nice in the middle of the city. Little park areas...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
