One of the most colorful Parisian parks, Parc Montsouris was opened in 1878, designed by Alphand for the Baron Haussmann. Long stretches of gently sloping lawns surround a large man-made lake and waterfalls. You'll see bronze statues among the 1,400 trees, which include exotic giant sequoias and ginkgos. The park is featured in the film Cléo de 5 à 7, and is popular with families (there are two playground areas for children) and students.

My favourite part of Paris. Quiet, green, full of dogs, babies on the grass and ducks in the pond. My happy place. Perfect for picnics, afternoon naps, reading a book and people/nature watching. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of Paris :)
If you are a student in Paris this is the place you will seek for a moment of relaxation. (Especially in autumn)
