Tips from locals
Take a short (10 min) stroll along the canal d'Ourcq and you will arrive to La Villete park. A great area for picnic. It also contains the science museum and a 3D cinema La Geode.
Go see a movie outdoors. In summer in Paris (from July 17 to August 18 in 2019), you can go see beautiful movies on the lawns of La Villette. Very good atmosphere guaranteed. The movies begin at sunset, and I recommend going early, for a picnic for example.
If it is sunny, go picnic there and get away from the busy roads. You'll cross ducks by the river canal, families, lovers, bikes, boats...etc Some years, on summer, there is even a free outdoor cinema.
