A beautiful park across from the "Cité Universitaire" and wild parrots!

I came across the Parc Montsouris as I was making my way to the Porte d'Orléans on foot and I had time to kill, so I ventured inside. It was a nice day and there were quite a few... read more

I came across the Parc Montsouris as I was making my way to the Porte d'Orléans on foot and I had time to kill, so I ventured inside. It was a nice day and there were quite a few joggers around. It is not a big park, but the elevation differences in it make it feel quite big. There are... More

The Parc Montsouris is a lovely green park in the 14th arrondisement in Paris. Another beautiful green space to sit, stroll, jog in right in the city of Paris. There is a very nice restaurant called Pavillon Montsouris here that opens directly onto the park. Highly recommended!

We went there on a saturday afternoon towards the end of the afternoon. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle although it was very busy. I recommend visiting if you are in the area otherwise it probably isnt worth the trip.

Parc Mountsouris in the 14th Arrondissement a gem of an English-style park. That is naturally landscaped like Central Park in New York or the Englischer Garten in Munich with large undulating expanses of lawn on which you can walk, sit, or play, giant trees not set in straight rows, and a generally natural look. It has a beautiful little lake... More

We spent a couple of hours here. Just a really nice peaceful oasis within the city. A nice variety of open areas, trails, ponds, etc. Some food available. We listened to a live band playing in the pavilion. It was all really nice.

My youngest loved playing in the kids section of the park. It is filled with a huge sandy area for digging, slides, climbing forts and also a miniature mountain range with a highway. We loved it!

A wonderful place to get away from all the noise of the city, this is a very well manicured park that has a mix of lakes, paths and at the right time of the year some beautiful flower beds.

Are you jet-legged?....feeling the constraints of daily life?.....then head on down to a haven of colour,charm and peace in green,residential,south Paris. Its a short hop from Montparnasse and its 37 acres will infuse you with a romantic-style park perfect after a busy day of sightseeing.

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
