  • It's another Paris that you discover in this park. The traffic of the city resounds distantly among the people intent on running, walking or watching the passage sitting on a bench. It's another Paris out of the usual route, where the palaces are the backdrop to the greenery. If you climb up the hill overlooking the lake you can see a paris less touristy and, perhaps, even more romantic. Recommended at sunset.

  • Well known to Parisians, unknown to tourists, the park that transforms Paris into an English garden. Built in an old stone quarry, a visit that changes from the usual major tourist sites, and that does not disappoint.

  • Beautiful and big park. It contains hills and a waterfall. You walk through it and discover something unexpected on many places. People were siting on grass and enjoying the sun. Lovely!
  • Beautiful park, with two waterfalls and an island with a gorgeous view. Lots of people relaxing on the grass, while others are walking/jogging along the paths. Many couples taking engagement and wedding photos. Free to the public with wifi making it easy to post your picturesque photos to social media.
