A Garden with an Island

The Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a public garden situated in the 19th arrondissement. The main feature of the park is the Belvedere (or Temple) of Sybil, which sits at the top of an island in the middle of a lake. Besides the Belvedere of Sybil the attractions of the Parc des Buttes Chaumont are numerous. The park includes several cliffs and bridges, a grotto that encloses a 20-metre high waterfall, a lake, and several English and Chinese gardens. A 63 meter long suspension bridge, renovated in 2009, crosses the lake and allows access to the island. A 22 meter high bridge, known as the "suicide bridge," allows access to the belvedere from the south side of the park. The park also contains restaurants, theaters, and wi-fi.
