Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

4.7
#1 of 3,231 in Parks in France
In the heart of the Left Bank, Luxembourg Gardens is arguably the loveliest park in Paris, with lush lawns radiating out from a pond centerpiece. Inspired by the Boboli Gardens of Florence, these gardens were created in 1612 by Queen Marie de Medici. Whether you're by yourself or with a whole group, this park is a relaxing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can watch locals play the legendary French game of boules or simply stroll past over 100 distinct statues. Luxembourg Gardens is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Paris Edition.

  • a garden that is different to all the seasons through the magnificent plantations and flowers. We like to stroll, relax by watching children sail their yachts, or the tennis match, it's delightfully old-fashioned and very well placed, sometimes Expos photos on the grids. You can sip a coffee in one of the kiosks in the garden, is near place St. Sulpice, the pantheon, in short we do not get tired.

  • A beautiful ride, but not of the most transcendent of Paris, if you went to Versailles, this ride is dispensable

  • Little Piece of Heaven! There are many beautiful green spaces/gardens in Paris, but Luxembourg Gardens was my favorite. The vibration of the place is amazing, specially if it is a sunny day.. There are amazing statues scattered around and gigantic fountains. :)) There was a gorgeous little shaded duck pond and stunning manicured hedges everywhere. A lovely place to visit!
  • Beautiful gardens, wonderful place for a picnic. The playground area was very nice. Love that the floor is not sand. It is a soft tiled surface. The older kids play area looked really nice although my son is 2 and was not able to use it. I was tempted to try some myself :)
