L’Été du Canal

Created in the 19th-century in the north-east of Paris to supply the city with drinking water and transport goods, the canal de l’Ourcq has steadily become a walker’s paradise. In summer, activities are organized between the bassin de La Villette, in the 19th arrondissement, and the Poudrerie forest park, in Sevran, to the northeast of the capital, reached by river bus. The pop-up leisure port in Bobigny with its restaurants, bars, balls, concerts and more is one of the recommended stops. Cruises devoted to everything from fun to food are also on the agenda, as well as activities on the canal Saint-Denis, which is connected to the canal de l’Ourcq.

Every week-end, until August 25
