The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bercy / Nation
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. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
How to get there
  • Porte Dorée • 4 min walk
  • Michel Bizot • 8 min walk

It's a very big park and easily accessible from the city centre. You can enjoy a bike ride int the park. The chateau and the chapelle is also worth seeing.

Nice bois!

On our trip to Paris we were staying close the bois de vincenne, we walked there and it was a really nice walk. But nothing important to do or see. It drives you to an intrresting chateau.

Very nice little park with lots going on
Sep 2019 • Couples
Very nice little park. Not very clean by North American standards but ok. Boats to rent, pony rides for the kids, people fishing, tight rope walking. Just simply tons going on in the park. A very nice walk around. A nice lake that the trails follow around with a couple islands in the middle. One with a tower that you can walk under neath. All in all a very nice place to spend a few hours in this park.

Huge park.
Excellent for passing sometimes for avoiding the heat and the traffic jam and really a short way from everything.
The zoo is not the most interesting part but for the children..another story my friends,
To go and go again.
Cheers,Olli from Riad Dar Najat in Marrakech.

This huge park is a massive green space that works for health and relaxation. My favorite activity is rowing on one of the lakes, but the zoo is a runner-up And then there are the pavilions left over from the international expo in the 1930s.

hired bikes near Pointe Doree
Apr 2019 • Couples
Efficient, straight forward bike hire, with well maintained basic bikes
Despite having a map provided, rode in circles as park poorly signposted. Couldnt visit Parc Florial nor Arboretum with bikes. we should have asked for bike locks when we hired them.
But had pleasant ride through the woods,
had to ride through locals playing Boule on the paths in a few places!

Nice city foret
Oct 2018
One of the two forets in Paris. The foret is quite big and much less crowded than Bois de Boulogne. Good place for a walk and a jogging.

Biking through the Forest of Vincennes, a wonderful ride.
Feb 2018
Well, actually, this was some years ago. We were renting an apartment in Vicennes and frequently rented bikes. We would ride through the forest and often ride to down town Paris, park the bikes and visit the city. This is the best way to actually see Paris and not be in a metro!
