Wonderful getting out of the hustle and bustle and sitting soaking up the sun and watching the world go by. So peaceful.

Gardens in Paris are part of the whole experience and this is one of the best. Pack a baguette, a bottle and some cheese and spend the afternoon under a tree.

Wonderful for morning jog (or walk) round the perimeter. Lunch-time people watching. You find the grass that you may sit on eventually, but you need to like to sit close. Or watch the boules clubs at play: serious stuff.

Just spent a lovely family afternoon here, some warm sunshine, happy people relaxing. Plenty seats available round the pond even though lots of people in the park. Only three euros for half an hour of enjoyment for nine year old to hire a boat for the pond. Enjoy.

Luxembourg Gardens has something for everyone. For just sitting and chatting with friends while soaking up the sun, it's perfect. It's also just as enjoyable if you are alone. A wonderful place to relax after walking all over Paris. For children there are lots of sandboxes, several playgrounds, a merry go round, pony rides, and little boats that you can... More

Much of Parisian history has taken place in these gardens. The Parisians love to have lunch there and you can get some (heavy) metal chairs and locate them wherever you please (except on the grass). The gardens are beautiful and the statuery is worth looking at. Just take a book (kindles accepted...) and enjoy a lazy afternoon. Do not miss... More

This is a lovely place to take an afternoon break when sightseeing. It is a smaller version of the Tuileries Garden. Once inside the gardens you will be able to relax, read and even grab a snack. The gardens are laid out in a formal manner with two tiers, open space, pools of water, and tree lined spaces. A variety... More

Great free way to spend an hour or so relaxing and enjoying the weather (if you are lucky enough). The gardens are lovely and typical French design. The main fountain is gorgeous as well. Worth a walk around before visiting other attractions close by (Pantheon from memory was just up the road).
