After a bit of research we found the entrance to this converted railway line not far rom Bastille Opera House.
It was once an elevated railway line crossing the city but has now been converted to a garden walkway. It was the first one of these gardens but now there are others across the world such as the famous one in New York.
Not a promising stair case but once you reach the top that changes
and a wonderful world of green vegetation peppered with glorious clumps of roses opens up before you.
This pathway is high above the roadway and when there is a break in the trees you can peek out into new neighbourhoods and gaze at the many lovely apartment buildings along the way.
Roses, roses everywhere
Sometimes, off to the side there are little parks made into fitness areas and you exit via a lift or stairs
and always ahead there is that lovely cool green path beckoning.
Or another beautiful building peeking through the trees
Of course there are places too to sit in the sun as Parisians love to do.
It's a great place for joggers and walkers getting their daily eexercise
Or mothers with their babies in strollers.
The good level surface makes the going very easy.
Every now and then there is another small park off to the side
Where workers can be seen lunching or just soaking up the sunshine.
Sometimes it comes back down to road level and goes through suburban shopping areas.
Then this again.
There are regular exits ..and even Public Toilets - a rarity in Paris !
