Butte Chaumont/specific words
Message de mattparis posté le 17-03-2021 à 10:17:44 (S | E | F)
Hello,

Former history student, I am working on an app and a blog about Paris history and architecture. This is a personal project.
I would like to propose an English version of all that.

The paragraph below is about the Buttes Chaumont park, characterized by a particular land with many reliefs. I am not sure about some words (in green below) implied by this specific land. Of course, I am also able to make many other mistakes😀
Here is the paragraph :

There used to be a rather desolate place here, on the edge of town. There were quarries, but also vast dumps. When the limits of Paris were extended in 1860, the quarries ceased their activity, and left a land difficult to construct and very hilly. Adolphe Alphand, chief engineer under Haussmann, took up the challenge of this complicated land. He even took advantage of the drop-offs to create viewpoints and a mountainous landscape. The works were gigantic and required the assistance of a thousand workers over two years, in particular for the earthworks and hydraulic development.

Does this seem correct to you?
Thank you for your kind answers.

Hello Matt,
It was very good already but I made a few changes. Here you go:
There used to be a rather desolate place here, on the edge of town. There were quarries but also vast dumps. When the limits of Paris were extended in 1860 the quarries ceased their activity and left a land difficult to construct on which was very hilly. Adolphe Alphand, chief engineer under Haussmann, took up the challenge of this complicated land. He even took advantage of the drop-offs to create viewpoints and a mountainous landscape. The works were gigantic and required the assistance of a thousand workers over two years, in particular for the earthworks and hydraulic development.

Cheers.
