Article about Paris Canals

This article appears to be from 2003, but it is still interesting. Read about the Canal Saint-Denis, Canal Ourcq and the Canal Saint Martin.

This system, built in the early 1800s by Napoleon Bonaparte, today includes a network of waterways stretching 81 miles across very different Paris neighborhoods and into the suburbs.

The Bassin de l'Arsenal is a beautiful park-like marina located at Bastille where the canal meets the Seine. Highly recommended spot to hang out for a bit! We use to visit there every week or two to see cruisers who were passing through.
