Built during the reign of Emperor Louis Napoleon, Bois de Boulogne is a large public park near Boulogne-Billancourt and Neuilly-sur-Seine. The second largest park in Paris, it is three times larger than Central Park in New York. Stroll through an English landscape garden with several lakes and a cascade, two smaller botanical and landscape gardens, and a complex of greenhouses holding a hundred thousand plants. You also can find a zoo and amusement park in the Jardin d'Acclimatation, two tracks for horse racing, the Hippodrome de Longchamp and the Auteuil Hippodrome, a tennis stadium where the French Open tennis tournament is held each year, and other attractions.

In front of the building is a beautiful lake with stands-not strange that the mansion should lie just here, and so even not so far from the city. The onward walk led us to the Palais Dauphine, which is nothing short of a gem in Art Nouveau-a style as reviewed in Guimard ́s metro station Porte Dauphine.
A really friendly group of local volunteers run this Parkrun but tourists and visitors are always welcome. Briefings are given in French and English. I’d really recommend going along if in Paris for t... more »
Nice park for a run. The LV foundation is also interesting to check out.
Beautiful park for running or a weekend stroll. You can disappear into the forest (even on weekends) and enjoy nature while still being very close to Paris. It is very peaceful and I love running through the woods. Easy access from the 16th but worth the trip from other places in Paris too if you are looking to escape the crowds.
