Park
“Parc Paul Mistral is the biggest open park in Grenoble. In the park you can try running, jogging, there is an open skating area, and a stadium. In the park you can also find La Bobine, one of the most popular bars (and also a restaurant during the day) in the city. The place is normally full of very interesting people, mostly students but also people from all ages. If you are looking for a place to interact with other people and feel at home in the spirit of the Alps, you should come to Parc Paul Mistral!”
