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. The joyous cries from the wee ones indicated that they are well catered for with... More

Parc Montsouris is one of many public parks in Paris, but it certainly ranks as my favourite. Most other Paris parks are "jardins" or gardens, all trimmed and beautiful to see but not accessible to use as a resting area or picnic. Montsouris is different, it has a natural, free feeling to it, the rolling grassy hills offer many perfect... More

The Park is an exceptional example of a very good place to go for a picnic or to take children. It also has a restaurant. And you can easily visit Artribus - atelier-galerie, Mustapha Boutadjine, 68 rue Brillat-Savarin, 75013, Paris. It is very near to the park. When I was at Artribus it had the works of four Cuban plastic... More

We stayed in a friend's Porte d'Orleans apartment near Parc Montsouris and walked over there one evening for a late picnic supper. Many, many Parisians of all shapes and sizes were about, lounging, eating, playing. We sat at a bench on a hill to the west of the large lake (the engineer committed suicide on opening day when the lake... More
