Day 26: Parc de la Villette and Parc Monceau

Both Parc de la Villette and Parc Monceau are very urban parks. However, that is all they have in common. Parc de la Villette was completed in 1991 and the park designer had input from deconstructionist philospher Jacques Derrida. It contains 10 themed gardens, sculpture by Claes Oldenburg, and several music and film venues. Parc Monceau, on the other hand, is located in a very well-to-do section of Paris and strives to be a very old-fashioned park with faux classic ruins.
