When you go to this park, take the metro Les Sablons and walk trough the streets of Levallois Perret to this park (direction Parc'aclimate). Its great to go during the week since the park offers many big trees and it's good to walk with your lovable. Surely someting to reccomend. Go out and visit the Loui Vuttion museum as well,... More

I went there to try a 10K, ended up joining the half marathon. It is a great place to go for a run. It is full of trees, meadows, lakes, pedestrian and runners paths. It is just 10 min away from Champs Elysees, so even tourists can go there without getting lost. It is refreshingly green in a city packed... More

If you are looking for a stroll the Bois de Boulogne should be in your plans. A very pleasant and easy walk is around the grand lac, a 45 minutes walk, Views of the lake , the Napoleon III pavillon , the birds and vegetation are soothing ( avoid Sundays as it is very crowded ) If you so desire...

Amazing day spent here! The place is huge with many locals jogging with their dogs and socializing. We were astonished with the beauty of this place and of how many things paris has to offer. You would never think that a place like paris, with many people, cars ect has a quite place like this. We rented a rowing boat... More

This is a great green space near Paris which has a large area of forest interspersed with lakes . The largest lake has boats for hire and a restaurant on an island in the middle of the lake accessed by a ferry However the jewel in the crown is the Parc de Bagatelle for which there is a modest entry...

I visited in Spring in the rain and decided that at 8 Euro to go inside the actual historic park I would just wonder the paths. I didn't encounter any of the gays or prostitutes mentioned. It wasn't easy to really orientate yourself but i am pretty hopeless. I will definitely go back as I want to see the Rose... More

We usually visit Paris in January for my birthday but as we were in Paris in August we took the opportunity to visit this park. This is a very large park and we only managed to visit the part nearest Porte Dauphine. We found a path through the wooded area which reminded us of Mugdock park near where we live.... More

This park, which is more like a tiny forest right next to the City (it's actually inside the city limits), is really wonderful during the day. It has many stuff to offer to the public, including the Jardin d'Acclimatation. You can job, rest, relax... However, during the night, it's one of the main spots of the Parisian prostitution scene!
