A very nice area in Paris with a lot of activities for everyone

The canal Saint-Martin (which starts at the level of the Goncourt metro station) offers a nice walk, scooter or bike ride to the bassin de la Villette.

The Bassin de la Villette (800m long and 70m wide), remarkably developed in recent years, attracts Parisians and tourists for its activities on the water (rental of small electric boats or the cruise on the Saint-Martin canal towards the Seine in direction of the Orsay museum), its cinema (MK2 Quai de Seine), its bars, its restaurants or its boulodrome. It links the Saint-Martin canal and the Ourcq canal.

Passed the canal of Saint-Denis, we arrive at the urban park of La Villette, immense complex made up of a superb park (with playgrounds for the children and large lawns), of the Geode, from the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie the Geode or the Zenith.
