For the new heatwave episode, the City of Paris opens at night and until midnight, six more parks and gardens – in addition to those already open in the summer. The goal? Helping you all cooling off as high temperatures are expected in the city until Sunday. Here is how to get cooler!

The heatwave is back in Paris and everywhere else in France. This Thursday August 11, Météo France places 18 departments in orange alert for intense heat and 32 more in yellow vigilance including Paris and the entire Île-de-France region.

With such intense heat, the least corner of shadow is coveted by people looking for some freshness. To enjoy more bearable temperatures, the City of Paris opens every summer 14 parks and gardens until midnight, from July 1 to September 4, in addition to the 140 ones already open non-stop.

But as the heatwave has been lasting in Paris, the city has decided to exceptionally open – from Wednesday August 10 to Sunday 14, 2022 – six more green spaces, namely 20 big parks, gardens and squares open all evening long.

The City of Paris sets up a specific watch system so the opening can occur in the best way possible for Parisians and visitors”, the municipality states.

 

Tweet reads: “#IntenseHeat | Because of the high temperatures expected this end of the week, more parks and gardens open until midnight starting this Wednesday”.

Here are the 6 extra green spaces open until midnight (authorization valid from Wednesday August 10 to Sunday 14)


Here are the 14 more green spaces open until midnight in Paris all summer long:


With a park open in almost every single arrondissement of the city, you are likely to find a green spot near you. Lots of fresh islands are available in Paris to face such intense heat this week, including churches, fountains, swimming pools and libraries.
