I visited this park twice during my morning runs, while visiting Paris. What a special place this is!! It has a quite large pond and, in the mornings, it's quite a calm and relaxing spot. Lot's of fellow runners too.
A large park in the 12th with adjacent zoo, we did not visit the zoo, which we visited on a very warm weekend when it appeared half the people in Paris had the same idea. Not as much shade as I expected and what shade...More
I am so lucky to be living next to this park. I really enjoy taking my dog for long walks. The Bois can be a bit intimidating and it's easy to get turned around or lost. It's a good idea to have your cell phone...More
This park is so relaxing and beautiful. We had a picnic here with the view of the lake and the Temple of Love. We then rented a boat and rowed around for an hour. Would definitely recommend to spend the day or half. Also a...More
After visiting the Parc Floral de Paris, I walked a bit in the Bois de Vincennes, since that is where the Parc Floral is located. This is simply an enormous parc. I don't know if I could cover the entire thing on foot in several...More
Bois de Vincennes at the Île de Reuilly is a great place to spend the day. You can bring your bicycle, a picnic basket, and a pair of binoculars and spend a relaxed day exercising and watching the birds that nest by the lake. The...More
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks.

For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make

Hi - last week in Paris we went to the races at Longchamp (Bois du Boulogne) and it seemed pretty easy to just buy a ticket at the gate (5euros). Not sure if it will be more difficult in the height of summer but as with all things in Paris in tourist season, getting there early would be the key. Try the Paris Info website for contact details and info on times etc - for the Hippodrome de Vincennes, Paris.
Also very easy to get metro to Vincennes but it's a huge place so you might want to check if there's a courtesy bus from the Metro to the race track - there was one at Longchamps but as we were running a bit late we chose to get a taxi instead. Good luck and enjoy the races!
