A more modern park, the Parc de la Villette was designed by French architect Bernard Tschumi and built in the mid-1980s. A cultural hub, many institutions including the Cité de la Musique are located on site, and the new Philharmonie de Paris, a symphonic concert hall designed by Jean Nouvel, will open here in 2015. It’s a great spot for picnics, too.
