Perfect for a stroll
Plaine Commune is proud of its many parks, public gardens and green spaces that offer a realcontrast to those so often overcrowded in the Capital. Here, there is no such problem. You can take advantage of, amongst others, the Parc Georges Valbon In La Courneuve, the Parc Départemental de l’Ile Saint-Denis and many other green spaces boasting various attractions, giving everyone a chance to embrace nature.
The River Seine, a whole new world to explore
To enjoy a relaxing walk or bike ride, follow the canal de l’Ourcq and continue up the canal Saint-
Denis out of Paris towards Saint-Denis.
From there, you can also reach the banks of the River Seine and the beautiful backdrop it offers for a walk, as on the impressionists trail or the towpath in Epinay-sur-Seine.
Each year, guided river cruises take you on themed tours of the Saint-Denis canal and the River Seine presenting the area, its traditions and its history.
