Famous for housing the Fête de l’Humanité since 1972, the Parc Départemental Georges-Valbon – set in Seine-Saint-Denis – is first and foremost the biggest park in Île-de-France.
commonly called Parc de La Courneuve, this park is the third biggest parkland in the area following Bois de Vincennes and Bois de Boulogne.
This huge 417-hectare park covers 5 cities: La Courneuve, Stains, Dugny, and Saint-Denis in Seine-Saint-Denis, and Garges-lès-Gonesse in Val d’Oise.
The Parc Georges-Valbon enjoys a hilly terrain and many hidden corners, featuring furniture so that families and friends can have a seat and stay isolated.
Even though many parks in Paris and Île-de-France are providing lovely cherry blossoms, this is not the case here. Yet, the Parc Georges-Valbon is richly filled with trees and bushes. Not many flowers either, excluding daisies and other wild flowers massively sprouting here and there.
This lovely and very wide park houses many entertainments: many and wide playgrounds for children, paved ways for bicycle riders, sport areas, tennis tables…
Picnicking at Parc Georges-Valbon also feels great as there are huge pitches, and lakes. The park is so wide that each group can easily enjoy their own space without being too close to other people and keep social distancing.
And our pet friends are welcome. In addition of being admitted in the park, dogs can enjoy big dog areas so they can run free!
The Parc Georges-Valbon enjoys a great fauna and flora. You can even walk by many (and beautiful) magpies.
Many sporting activities (boxing, Nordic walking…) and leisure are provided.
Pony rides for children are even available.
