Painted by Monet numerous times, Parc Monceau is an elegant green space in the middle of cosmopolitan Paris. Check out the statues, entrance rotunda, and the surrounding mansions. Thanks to city planner Haussmann, this precious slice of parkland was reserved for the enjoyment and leisure of the people of Paris. The park's plan is unusual in France, due to its casual, English-style layout. This contrasts with other Parisian parks, such as the formal Luxembourg Gardens and Tuileries. Scaled-down architectural replicas are scattered through the park, including an Egyptian pyramid, a Dutch windmill, and a Chinese fort.

  • This is one of Paris' most beautiful parks probably because it is located in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods. Everything about it is very posh. But it is open to all and you can feel...

  • There are way too many people there. Most of them jogging, doing some outdoor sport. If you look for some me-time, a nice, calm walk, this is not the place. At the same time, the park is beautiful...

  • Beautiful compact city park. Perfect for a morning jog or stroll around the circa 1k lap. Lots of people exercising in mornings and kids playing in afternoons. Lovely variety of trees and shrubs. In a word: A GEM !
  • A delightfully peaceful little park where children are safe to play imaginatively and creatively. We saw kids climbing, running, skating and riding. Even the supervising parents scorned their screens to join their children in the real world. A kiosk for snacks, a carousel, a Smurfs village, a little lake and some interesting stone bridges and columns added to the fun. More of this is needed back in Australia!
