The Parc de Belleville is located on the hill of Belleville, its 108 metres making it the highest park in Paris. The park was conceived by the architect François Debulois and the landscaper Paul Brichet. It was inaugurated in 1988. It is not so big as the Parc des Buttes Chaumont nearby but very beautiful. The park offers 1200 trees and shrubs, a 100 metre-long waterfall fountain (the longest in Paris), and 1000 m2 of lawn accessible to the public. It also contains a wooden playground for children, ping-pong tables and an open-air theatre. At the top of the park lies the Maison de l'Air, a small museum designed to educate visitors to the importance of fresh air and to the problems of pollution.
The park also prides itself on its display of annual flowers. The gardeners prepare the flower beds two years in advance, in tight collaboration with the horticultural center of Rungis. Their compositions have received prizes numerous times at the Concours des Décorations Florales Estivales (Summer Floral Decoration Competition), which takes place each year in September. And in addition to this, the park offers a magnificent view on Paris.
