So glad I took my butt up here this time. Such a beautiful place....and historic. So green and pretty, families and joggers and people all over. The man made mountain and river and waterfall were so cool. It's up in the NE corner of the city but it's not really that far so go up and enjoy a late morning... More

Though it's a bit far and out of the way from central Paris, it's worth a trip up here if you have the time... Especially during a period of good weather... I LOVE this park for it's hills and interesting presentation... It has a small manmade lake with a cool suspension bridge you can walk across.... Also, at the top... More

Beautiful garden and parc in the 19th. It's a very pleasant stroll in the park. A great afternoon reprise from the traffic and hubbub of Paris. It's a quick 10 minutes from just about anywhere in the city.

Very beautiful park. Interesting nooks and crannies, especially if you are with someone who really knows the park. Soothing walk around in non-tourist season.

Nothing special in this quiet park, the area is average too, we stopped on our way to the Pere Lachaise cemetery. It must have been nice ones. Looked for opened bathrooms...none were operational!!!

Magical park which is worth a visit. Has a nice waterfall and offers a good view over the city, which is beautiful at night.

This is a beautiful park for strolling, relaxing and taking photos. I loved that there were so many people enjoying the space. The temple at the top of the hill is beautiful and the views out over the Sacre Coeur are terrific. There is even a suspension bridge for a little something extra. If you're tempted to sit on the...

You can see the tops of old buildings, cathedrals, and bell towers, all from the comfort of a beautiful park. The trees are very tall and the park seems to have less man-made/designed gardening than generally seen in Paris or France. Small coffee shop at the top is beautiful and calm place to sit down and work. Beautiful views of... More

This park is huge and has waterfalls to hike to and some real climbing for folks who have spent too much time on the flat tourist track. We stopped here after a fantastic boat tour on the Paris canals and easily got back home by Metro in time for dinner.

Paris has hundreds of parks, many of them wonderful. This English-style, rolling park is the best and perfect for strolling, picnicking, photography - or even a snooze. There's a tower in the middle that, from the oversized pond below, looks like it belongs in a Lord of the Rings scene. You can eat at the park's cafe or take something... More
