Though it is not very tourist-oriented, the neighbourhood "Quatre routes" is very commercialized, featuring a large market which is open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sunday mornings. To reach the nearby Parc départemental de La Courneuve, the largest green space in the département (approximately 4 km²), take the T1 to the station "Six routes". During the Fête de l'Humanité at the beginning of September, a shuttle takes people directly there from the terminus of the métro.
