The gardens are vast and stunning. This isn't a traditional tourist stop and it seemed like most of the people enjoying the park were locals, but that made my time there extra special. The park is so incredibly well groomed and just perfect. Everybody was sitting about reading books and newspapers, having picnics and lively conversations, watching toy boats bob... More

Our hotel was only a 3 minute walk from the gardens, so we often passed it, or a couple times walk through it during our week stay in Paris. It is quite beautiful with walkway, broad promenades, walking/jogging ways, chairs and even grassy lawns to recline on. The weather was quiet hot for much of the week we were there,... More

Who can resist the allure of the original Paris Park, the one that is painted over and over again? The French know how to use their parks well. Look for readers, kids floating boats, lovers cooing, and special performances in the shady areas near side entrances. Many options here.

This is a great family park, with gardens, a palace, sculptures, a small lake.... It has a really relaxed vibe, and it's close to everything in St. Germain and Latin Qtr.

The gardens are so pretty such a cool setting during the hot summer! Great for the children to run off steam.

The day we went we had a huge rainstorm and everyone in the park was sheltering. However, the sun came out and we were able to stroll around the beautiful gardens and sit on the chairs by the pond. The part we visited (and I know there was more to it) was stunning and so relaxing and we finished our... More

Beautifully landscaped, this park has it all--tennis courts, playgrounds, sculpture, chairs and benches, a small lake for children to launch model boats.

We strolled around the Jardins du Luxembourg on a very hot day and enjoyed the many cool spots to sit under the trees. The gardens are glorious in any season and the views all around delightful. Not to be missed if you need a break from the bustle of a big and noisy city.

On a lovely sunny afternoon there can be few greater pleasures than to walk and sit in the Luxembourg Gardens and to see the world go by
