This large park in the 15th Arrondissement has both an intricately designed formal section as well as a more relaxed informal section, both filled with a beautiful collection of flowers and plants.

Parc Citroen is a beautiful and from what I understand consider an architectural gem. It has of course the Paris Balloon, a great attraction. If you're not interested in the balloon itself and architecture isn't your main interest than there are plenty more central parks in Paris. But it's great.

We would never have discovered this little park if we were not moored right beside it on the last few days of a river cruise along the Seine. It is full of surprises - the little gardens of all styles and behind them a wild area. Then the fountains - those ones that spring up from the paving which were... More

Parc Andre Citroën was a 10 minute walk from our hotel. It is tranquil and pretty with water features and a brilliant balloon ride. The balloon ride only costs €12 per person and takes you 150m to get an amazing view of Paris. If we were there for longer, we would have visited more than once.

It was about time we visit the Parc André Citroën, one of our favorite places in Paris, especially on warm summer days. When we arrived at the gate, we were surprised to see a posted notice saying that the park would be open until 10PM in July and August. We suppose this is because of the heat wave the city... More

We discovered this park by heading for the Ballon de Paris, which we didn't know about until we saw it in the air. The park had a lot of youngsters of all ages in it, many seemed to be with school groups and they were having a great time. The balloon is fantastic and I will review it elsewhere if... More

This is a large park with a lot of potential. But the city doesn't seem to have the budget or to be interested in designing an attractive space and maintaining it properly. Several areas are damaged or missing around the canal and several water system are ou of order. It is not a tourist destination. It is more appropriate for... More

The park is a great refuge for adults and kids. The little ones particularly enjoy to run through the water fountains. The hot air balloon is a nice touch and gives the park its individuality.

Javel Metro or RER stations are 5min walk from it... The park itself is nothing special... But it is the Air baloon with which you can fly that is the important here. The baloon is huge... and nice, and exciting, and not very expensive... BUT, they are often closed down due to wind. I would advise you check their website... More

This park together with its balloon ride is conveniently located on the left bank of the Seine and only a short stroll from the Eiffel Tower. While the ride will cost the park facilities are free. There are wide open spaces to either relax or for the more active take some exercise. Certainly great for those with children.
