My sister, niece and I visited paris the end of July. We were staying near the Parc Andre-Citroën and saw the hot air balloon while riding the train to Versailles. "Let's go on a hot air balloon ride" we said. "Pour quoi pas?" Why not? Well, sister is afraid of heights. Nevertheless we talked her into it. For 12€ you... More

We came one day and the balloon wasn't operating, but we had been so impressed by how it looked that we came back the next day. Wow, what a view and it is such good value as well. 150 metres in the air, the ride lasts about 15 minutes and you see so much. The park itself seemed nice as... More

On returning to the ship, Rich, Barb and us had lunch and then went out walking on our own visiting the Parc Andre Citroen and riding up 400+ feet in a helium balloon over the city = WOW what great pictures! Only down side to the balloon ride was that Tom does not like heights and thinks there is still... More

A 35 acres park in the 15th arrondissement on the left bank ? whoopee!! Considering its located on a crucial waterfront site,it doesn't seem to interact with the residential neighbourhoods. The one feature that generates any sustained activity.... an array of fountains spurting from a flat,paved surface,had a sign warning children not to play there.It lacks cohesion,in as far,as to...

Large modern park with some lovely original landscaping, open spaces with fountains, and a tethered balloon that can get you 150 metres above ground for 10 minutes, for 12 euros. Balloon goes up gradually then stops for a bit before descending. The views of Paris, Seine and its bridges, are impressive, and being up in the sky felt completely different... More

One of the secret spaces of Paris is the Parc du Andre Citroen. Leaving the history of this park for you to investigate, it offers wide spaces where to chill out, enjoy the sun and maybe the water (if you have a hot day) and possibly walk around the glass houses and multiple gardens. This park was created having in... More

During a recent trip we visited the park in order to go up in the balloon. Having been up the Eiffel Tower on several previous visits, along with Montparnasse, it was good to see Paris in a different way. We visited the park on a Sunday morning at around half ten. The park was a lazy 10 minute walk from... More

A modern park with plenty of small individual plots to see, like chelsea flower show; water fountains to play with, although due to technical problems most were not working when visited, along with the greenhouses. There is also a giant balloon in the middle of the park. which cost €11/each but you get some great views of Paris, the ride... More

A splendid architecturally designed public garden. One of the finest urban parks. Designed, with a wide variety of "spots", thematic gardens, sampling out nature in its various aspects. We visited the garden on August's hottest day, almost 40 degrees centigrade. The fountain and its changing jets was full of people enjoying the waters, like the trocadero, on the same day.... More
