“Just sit back and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I like the atmosphere of the place - lots of people just hanging around: reading books or tablets, chatting with friends, eating or drinking. Very relaxed, laid back climate.
You can sit on the grass and just enjoy the view of the Eiffel Tower. You can also wander around and do some people watching.
It provides a good opportunity to take some photos of the Eiffel Tower.
Take something to sit on if you plan to spend more time here.

“Monuments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

It's difficult for this park to compete with its neighbour, the Eiffel Tower, but somehow it does.

The park is nicely laid out and offers ever changing vistas of the tower.

Don't forget to seek out the memorial and monument to the bicentennial of the French Revolution.

“Great views of the Eiffel tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is quite a large park at the base of the Eiffel tower, with great views. As with other large Paris parks, it can be quite busy on nice days, but there are always quiet spots if you wander around a bit towards the periphery of the park. There is a wide, open central path, bordered on both sides by paths shaded by trees. There are at least two playgrounds, so it is a great spot for kids. It would also be a lovely spot for a picnic with views of the Eiffel tower.

“Nice Apart from Beggars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Nice park with great views of the Eiffel Tower.

The problem is there are too many beggars and scammers in the area.
