Parks and Gardens of Paris

Jardin de Tuileries is situated between Le Lourve and Place de la Concorde

A favourite place for strolling in summer weather; take a book or a picnic, find a reclining chair, and relax beside the many fountains.  It’s easy to let hours go past in this park…

Buttes Chaumount, 19th arrondisement

My local park to go running.  The park is unconventional by design, with great rolling hills that lead to a huge lake and waterfall.  A rikkety, old bridge leads to one of the highest lookouts in Paris and the park, giving a great view on Sacre Coeur and surrounding arrondisements.  An unusual park  and a real pleasure to explore.

There are two restaurants and a pub with a beergarden inside the park.  The pub always has big lines in Summer.   I imagine it would be nice to eat there overlooking the park.

Jardin de Bagatelle
In the Bois de Boulogne, the forest to the west of Paris, is the Jardin de Bagatelle.

There is a spectacular rose garden, where each individual rose is named after someone…

Chateau de Vincennes

The chateau de Vincennes is in the forest to the east of Paris, the Bois de Vincennes.  The chateau was constructed in the 14th century by Charles V.  Whilst the Lourve was the main residence, the Royal family used this chateau for marriages and other important events.

Parc Monceau

Not far from the Champs Elysee, and from one corner of the park, you will see a great view of the Arc de Triomphe.  Beware though, appearances can be deceiving, it may look close to you but it is actually a fair walk.
