This large park in the 15th Arrondissement has both an intricately designed formal section as well as a more relaxed informal section, both filled with a beautiful collection of flowers and plants.

We were looking for somewhere to have a picnic with my sister, brother-in-law and 2 nieces (8 and 5) and decided on the Parc Andre-Citroen because of it's manageable size and the water jets on a day hitting high 30's. It was the right choice - the day was fabulous - the jets very popular with both children and adults... More

I revisited PAC after a couple of decades. It has a variety of gardens and shrubberries laid out as a modern city park. There were a number of staff attending to parts of it but over the years some parts have literally outgrown their location/ planters especially nearer the riverside and much more now needs doing to restore the park...

We loved the place, great for a picnic, letting the kids run in the fountines, and having a nice sun bath. Some times the fountines aren't working and that's fine there's still soft grass and a fun trip to the sky.

Parc Andrea-Citroen is far enough away from the crowds of people in Paris to enjoy, located in the 15th Arrondissement down by the River Seine. The park was created on the site of the old Citroen factory in 1992, these large public gardens are diverse and so is the architecture. There are many water features to also enjoy and if... More

The Parc André Citroën is located on the site of the former Parisian Citroën factory. Opened in 1992, with a surface area of 14 hectares, it is one of the newest parks in the capital. This futuristic site, designed by renowned landscapers and architects (Alain Provost, Gilles Clément, Patrick Berger, Jean-Paul Viguier and François Jodry), offers a beautiful view of... More

We visited this pleasant park one Saturday on a recent trip to Paris and throughly enjoyed it. We had hoped to go up in the balloon however flights were cancelled due to the wind. We would definitely recommend and no doubt will return to go in the balloon.

I visited the park in March and it was looking rather in need of care in that period between just before the start of spring when the flowers are not yet in bloom but it was a wide open space with the centre of attraction being the tethered baloon. Not quite Up Up and Away but certainly Up giving an... More

Not busy and easy to get to. Lots for everyone to do. Saw kids having a great time in the fountains. Lots of benches. Older people sitting amongst flowers and bushes. Shade if it gets hot. Attractions such as a balloon ride. Good walking. Near the river.

Parc Citroen is a beautiful and from what I understand consider an architectural gem. It has of course the Paris Balloon, a great attraction. If you're not interested in the balloon itself and architecture isn't your main interest than there are plenty more central parks in Paris. But it's great.
