“The heart of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We visit Paris about every second year and we always have to have a cople of hours in the Jardins. It is a place that is very relaxing and peaceful - not counting the gardening trucks - an oasis in the heart of the left bank. It is a bonus if there are boats on the pond. The chairs are even quite comfortable by public park standards and you can move them around for the sun and/or the best view for people-watching.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I spent some time here my first afternoon in Paris. There were many chairs set up throughout the gardens to sit and enjoy the view. I sat for a while at the different fountains. Only thing better would have been if i was enjoying a crepe while doing so. :)

“Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The gardens were exceptional, probably the best I have been to. It is ideal place for relaxtion , i went in October and the sun was out, autumm leaves were just coming, was not particulary busy that it got annoying and you can capture some really amazing scenery shots. Finally there are numerous places to sit, scattered throughout the garden and take in some of Paris's finest natural beauty.

“Absolutely gorgeous and peaceful.”

Serenity. Flowers were in a general yellow motif and coordinated. A very peaceful place indeed. Good family park.
