About 20 years ago, in 1993, Paris opened its own elevated park, long before New York City's much-adored High Line. It's located in the 12th arrondissement and runs 2.8 miles in length. The High Line is fabulous, no doubt a welcome breath of beauty in the bustling city, but I just found it interesting that there is another park quite similar in idea, resplendent in nature in Paris. Now I'm kicking myself for not visiting this unique landscape in Spring of last year.
