The Promenade Plantée, or Coulée verte René-Dumont, is a pedestrian walkway above street level that meanders through the 12th arrondissement. The pathway runs along a viaduct, previously used as a railway. Welcome to the original New York High Line.
Keeping in mind that it is January, it was a nice surprise to see how green and lush the plants were, compared to the frozen wasteland of Canadian winters.
And of course, I wasn’t surprised to find this place almost completely inhabited by runners (proving yet again it is the national sport).
