Paris Plage at Les Voies sur Berge

Paris Plages

Usually the nerve centre for the capital’s traffic, in summer the Seine’s riverbanks turn green and Paris Plages takes over 800 metres’ worth of prime concrete – the whole length of the right bank from Pont-Neuf in the 1st up to the Sully Hôtel de Ville in the 4th. On the menu: deckchairs, parasols, water sprayers and a Club Med-worthy raft of activities organised during the day: ballroom dancing, tai chi, table football, pétanque and, of course, pop-up refreshment bars a-go-go.
