If you are looking for good place for doing jogging in Paris and you are staying e.g. La defense, Bois de Boulonge seems to be suitable place. Comparison to busy streets you will find big area even for long run. Anyhow for new comer is not easy to keep oriented, finally is not necessary to be afraid of losing yourself,... 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!

Very big park, metro either end so somewhat useful. Not many sign posts to the park from the metro however. The lake area is very nice; plenty of benches and areas to sit and chill out. You can hire row boats I you wish though at 18E we didn't bother to do so. The park has a lot of roads... More

This is lovely spot to get away from the crowds. Some parts are quite dry (in mid summer), but the area around the lake is beautiful and lush. This is a great place for a picnic.

I wandered through the Bois de Boulogne after visiting the lovely Musee Marmatton. I wanted to see the Fondation Louis Vuitton building and hadn't visited this park before. It is very wild and I would not advise walking through it on your own. Some rather dodgy and seedy people around in amongst the bushes. The lake is rather lovely but... More

My wife and I rented bikes and rode around the lakes. Very picturesque. There was a nice little cafe area where we bought snacks and where local dog owners seemed to congregate. But no toilets to be found anywhere!

Maybe if my visit was earlier in the day, it would've been better. Or maybe not. My family and I left for this park at around six o'clock. Before leaving, we read that the park got "decidedly adult-ish" at night, however, it doesn't get extremely dark in Paris until nearly midnight, so we thought that if we stayed until seven... More

Someone suggested my husband and I go here for a run. Said it was safe during the day and "like Central Park in NYC"...Well, it was neither. It was overgrown and prostitutes were in several places. I would never have gone there had I known it was going to be so sketchy. One group of ladies was just finishing up... More
