Around fifteen Parisian parks and gardens will stay open all night until August 29th. Half of the green spaces benefiting from this initiative are located in the neighborhoods of Eastern Paris.
According to the city of Paris, “the measure aims to adapt the opening hours of green spaces to the practices of Parisians, particularly for those who do not go on holiday, but also to improve access to large parks and gardens in the event of a heat wave”.
Great news if you are around the Marais: the noble square of Place des Vosges will be open to the public without interruption all summer long. This will also be the case of the Square Sergent Aurélie Salel (XXth district), on the hillside of Ménilmontant.
Also in the 20th arrondissement, the Square Séverine at Porte de Bagnolet will not close its doors until the morning of August 29th. Finally, in the 12th arrondissement, the measure will be extended to the squares Émile Cohl and Georges Méliès.
The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, one of the lungs of the city, will remain accessible all night long on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The park will close between 10:30 pm and 7 am on the other days of the week. The Square Villemin (10th arrondissement), which is next to the Canal Saint-Martin and a stone’s throw from Gare de l’Est, will stay open all night on Friday and Saturday.
For all those who live by night or simply want to keep cool in the next heatwave, there are 123 parks and gardens continuously accessible across Paris.
