A useful park for quiet Sundays
Mar 2020
This inner-city small park, close to Champs-Elysees and other strategic touristic places, offers some quiet places, with some architectural exhibits that, although interesting, do not deserve a specific trip.

However (see photos), it houses a savage bird, human-eating flowers and extremely dangerous caves. Or at least, these are indicated as such. We appreciate a sense of entertaining overstatement by the park management team (unless it is the result of some risk-adverse attitude?).

I was so excited to find this park, I had seen a replica of a painting by Monet when I used to take my father for his treatments, and it always brought me comfort. Finding this actual park while in Paris was just wonderful and made me think of my father but in a happy light. Beautiful, serene. Gorgeous park, I highly suggest you find a few minutes to experience it while you are in Paris!

fantastic park
Mar 2019
we visited this park twice, the first at night when sadly it was closed and the next day before we went home, it's a great park which is well used, joggers everywhere but plenty of space for children to play, if you have an hour or so then it's a great way to spend it

Gem of a park in the 8th/17th
Nov 2019 • Family
Oasis from the city —- large mature trees, « folly »-filled gardens, water ... roundabout, extensive playground and pony rides for young kids.

In summer it is less crowded before 1 pm. On a Sunday look out for the joggers ... the park is a 1km oval circuit and gets a little busy on Sunday mornings!

Real-life Paris
Nov 2018
This is a huge city park which is a wonderful place for people of all ages. There is a wide walking path around the perimeter which always seemed to be in use - people with baby carriages, older couples walking arm in arm, younger people jogging with headphones. There are many huge grassy areas for sitting or lying in the sun or playing sports. Plenty of benches as well. There's a merry-go-round for the kids. Many trees for shade on hotter days.

A perfect place to take time out from intense sightseeing days or work if you're a local. Great people watching.

A vibrant little park
Oct 2019
This park in the heart of a residential area of Paris is beautifully maintained and so well utilised. When we walked round on a weekday morning there was a group doing Tai Chi, lots of joggers, commuters passing through, joggers, mothers/nannies and toddlers, local school/nursery groups and yet it still felt calm and peaceful.

Beautiful open space in the heart of Paris!
Oct 2019
This park was a 5 minute walk from my hotel and I relished walking here for some quiet and fresh air. It's very safe, immaculately maintained and always full of life.

One of the Prettiest Parks
Oct 2019
This is one of the prettiest parks in the city, surrounded by mansions all from the late 19th Century. The landscaping is exquisite and there are always lots of people around enjoying it all.

Lovely park with Roman ruins
Sep 2019
It's worth checking out this small park if you are visiting the Musee Jacquemart-Andre or the Musee Nissim de Camondo. It has Roman ruins and other interesting items and is a nice place to relax or to catch the number 2 Metro at Monceau.
