Description

A fantastic route for walking and cycling, the Coulée Verte green corridor in the south of Paris offers 14 kilometres of open spaces and facilities for fun days out. Running between Montparnasse in Paris and the Massy-Verrières station in Essonne, and surrounded by city life, this slice of nature is a popular family destination for peaceful Sunday walks.

The Coulée Verte is unspoilt and signposted, offering visitors all sorts of scenery from cityscapes to woods, as well as plenty of areas for relaxing or getting active: from children’s playgrounds to skate parks, fitness trails, picnic benches, ping pong tables and more.

Also known as the Promenade des Vallons de la Bièvre in memory of the river that once ran along the same route, it’s a great way to explore all the wildlife of the Paris Region. As you go, you’ll also get to retrace some of the area’s historical and architectural heritage. Gaze upon the capital’s stunning Place de la Catalogne designed by Ricardo Bofill in the 80s, the domaine départemental de Sceaux and its superb French-style garden, and round it off by exploring the arboretum de la Vallée-aux-loups and its 500 incredible tree species.

As an added bonus, the various stations along the route mean you can break it up into as many chunks as you like. This is an outing that will keep you going all year round!
