Bassin de la Villette

Where you find the smooth "Paris dirt" 
which I believe is a fine limestone gravel,
you will find people playing Petanque.  

It is not a game limited to the "old timers" you see in Louxembourg Gardens
 or Tuileries, but a game enjoyed by friends 
and family of of ages, gender, and generations.

bon weekend
