We entered the park through the NW entrance and exited though the SE entrance (or so I think) and right away we found a kids playground which our 6 years old daughter wanted to try (small entrance fee, but totally worth it - she loved it). My husband went inside the gated playground with her, and me and my son... More

There are so many possibilities when walking through the Luxembourg gardens. In all seasons there is so much to appreciate... the trees and plants are always a treat as are the ponds and fountains. There is the possibility to sit and relax just about anywhere, on benches or seats. You can have a meal or grab an ice cream, or... More

It is just a lovely experience. Enjoy your morning coffee. Watch the children excitedly guiding their boats at the fountain. So Paris. Both relaxing and invigorating at the same time.

It is huge and beautiful, and different parts look different. There are a lot of public chairs, so you can always find a place to sit. It closes at 9pm, so don't try to go too late, but it is wonderful. Definitely picnic in the park at least once.

A beautiful and quiet place to soak up lovely gardens and grounds. Fun to watch families float miniature sail boats on a fountain, ringing back days past. Don't miss!

Loved the gardens. They were just what we needed to relax a bit after walking all over Paris. The pond has small sailboats that children can rent and "pus" with sticks. It was really quite charming to watch and your kids would enjoy.

One of my top three favourite places in Paris! What more is there to say? It is a park in the centre of Paris. Just go there on a sunny day and stroll around. Have a sit and a doze in the sun, watch the toy boats on the lake. If you are feeling energetic there is a museum and... More

So luxurious and green, an oasis in the city. Beautiful place to just sit & watch the world go by. Buy an ice cream and take time to wander through the different areas, admiring the work of dedicated gardeners, beautiful sculptures, or just relax & watch a fascinating array of people and families enjoying time out.
