Paying tribute to the famous French singer who lived in the Vaugirard district, Georges-Brassens Park is located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, near the Porte de Vanves and Convention Metro stations. A lovely place for a walk, this expanse of around 9 hectares has a bust of Georges Brassens, as well as paths named after some of his songs. You can also see the belfry of the old Vaugirard abattoir market, a river, a belvedere, a rose garden and a scent garden. A garden of aromatic plants, vines and a beehive, whose honey can be bought on site, round it all off. There's plenty for children at Georges-Brassens Park, too: the swings, pony rides, roundabout, ping-pong and puppet theatre should keep them busy for a while!
Lovers of old books shouldn't miss the big antiquarian and second-hand book market that takes place every weekend from 9 am to 6 pm, in the old horse market halls adjoining the park.
Not far from there, don't miss a chance to take a stroll around the Villa Santos-Dumont. This picturesque cul-de-sac has façades covered with greenery and flowers for walkers to admire. Also worth noting, an address near this charming cobbled side street, 42 rue Santos-Dumont, is where Georges Brassens spent his final years.
