Good place in Paris ?

Hi

Does someone know a good place for practising in Paris ?

Well, i dont’t think Trocadero is one, since there are too many people, i’m
looking for a place offering obstacles, where it is quiet, and with trees !

Thanks in advance

Greg

There’s a nice big park near a performing arts center on the northeast edge of
the city. I can’t remember the name of it, but there’s a metro stop right there.
The park has paved walkways, ramps, large grassy areas and large paved areas.

Alas, I didn’t have my unicycle when I was there.

My travel partner consulted her maps, and it is La Villette.

Well, thank you for your response. I am asking myself if the park spoken by Seth
Golub isn’t “La Villette”, an area that i don’t know much.

I think that “les buttes chaumont” is a difficulty place, since it is always
going up and down, (it’s a hill).

La coulee verte is a way i didn’t know, and i thinhk i will try it. Thank you
very much for the idea !
