The Buttes-Chaumont district is becoming increasingly popular. It is a lively, working class district, perfect for those who want to escape the crowds. Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is a vast garden in the Haussmann style. It was built in 1867 on an old stone quarry for the Paris World's Fair. Covering more than 60 acres, it is the third largest green space in the capital after La Villette and Les Tuileries. With its high altitude and fresh air, the Buttes-Chaumont district is an enjoyable place to visit on a daily basis.
