High definition photos of Pont Flottant de la Villette in Paris
When visiting Park Villette you will find an additional, if not an unusual attraction you may enjoy, which is a motorised pedestrian floating bridge called the Pont Flottant de la Villette that crosses over the Canal de l'Ourcq. Now this floating bridge is used during the warmer months of the year to help cyclists, the disabled and families with young children to reach the other areas of the park.

Here you can see a photo of the Pont Flottant de la Villette positioned on the bank of the Canal de l'Ourcq in the Parc de la Villette, which we took as though we were looking towards the area where the Cite des Sciences is located in this cultural park in the 19th Arrondissement, but this was designed with a motor so that it could allow river traffic to pass in between manoeuvres.

In this photo of the Pont Flottant de la Villette located on the Canal de l'Ourcq, you can also see one of the bridges in Parc de la Villette that goes over to a Folie, which is the red building to the left of the image, and as you can no doubt tell, the floating bridge is an easier option for those with reduced mobility, and this operates between around 2.30pm through to 8.30pm from mid May to mid September.

This is another photo we took showing the Pont Flottant de la Villette along Allee du Canal towpath, which was designed by the Contrast Association, and inaugurated in 2008, this was initially meant to be specifically for the disabled, however, today it is also utilised for cyclists and families with young children in pushchairs and has transported hundreds of thousands of tourists across the canal.

Now to discover, or even use the Pont Flottant de la Villette for yourself, as we mentioned before, this is located inside the rather large cultural public park called Parc de la Villette in the 19th Arrondissement of Paris.
