Nearby Sights and Attractions:
- The "Petit Temple" (Little Temple) at the center of the park is a dome surrounded with white columns from which one can procure great views of Montmartre. Two bridges have you stroll across the man-made lake to lead to the temple.
- Artificial grottos and an imposing waterfall give the Buttes-Chaumont a slightly-campy amusement-park feel.
- A puppet theater at the park's south end will keep the kids entertained (generally open in spring and summer only).
- Picnics, naps, Frisbee or badminton matches are all ideal on the park's many hilly green spaces. Unlike many of Paris' parks, where sitting on the grass is forbidden, you can really sprawl out at this romantic-style park.
