You can stroll through this "park" which is really more like outside of Paris, than a park in the midst of this bustling metropolis, and feel the stress leave your body. Perfect for a stroll with a loved one.

After five busy days sightseeing in Paris, we spent the morning wandering, picnicking, and boating in Bois de Boulogne. On advice from a local, we took the metro and then a taxi into Lac Inferieur (she suggested, since we were first-time visitors and not familiar with the area, that this would be a 'less colourful' route with young children). The... More

A fille-de-joie gives us an inquisitive look. Men stare furtively from the bushes. Others turn their heads away like hunted criminals not wanting to be identified. If anything happened here there would be no point calling for help, no one would come. A mugging waiting to happen We find a street littered with the glass of a dozen smashed car... More

This is the venue for the Paris parkrun. It's only a few months old and most of the runners are Brit tourists. In sure it will grow to be hugely popular. There were a lot of French running groups using the forest but not parkrunning. Yet. Go now to achieve a high finishing place while it's still low key. The... More

I live close to Hyde Park in London and found this very similar. there are some slightly 'wilder' sections, but all in all a very similar experience - lakes check, open spaces with grass check, trees check, car park check, joggers check, dog walkers...you get the idea. if it's your first time to Paris I would recommend giving it a...

Four of us decided to walk through the Bois de Boulogne from Boulogne Billancourt to the Louis Vuitton Fondation (which incidently is fabulous) mid morning on a Saturday . It was a trek but the weather was good so we thought we'd go for it. Initially, all was well, people walking dogs and enjoying a coffee at small kiosk but... More

This is literally one of my favorite places in the world. More an enchanted forest than a park, it turns out it is the residence of my personal Muse. When I walk the miles of wooded trails my mind fills we with unsummoned thoughts and perceptions that send me racing back to my journal. There are lakes and streams and... More
