  • Beautiful parc! Great for running, you'll even get the chance to enjoy some french fries while chillin'. Try to make your way to the lake, you won't regret it ;)
  • Dog Friendly (more parks like this one please)
  • One of the few places in Paris where you can walk your dog and let it free. It's nice for picnics also or just a walk in the forest
  • Nice recreation area. Perfect for a jog or stroll with kids
  • Largest park in Paris, this is a sport oriented review. You can reach the park with the Velib as there are stations here and there. I enjoy the Bois de Boulogne to have a run across the park, you can see some wondrous building such as the LV foundation, or go for a run across the water. If you prefer bikes you can either do cross country or road bike following the roads crossing the parks. A 2h run and a 1h30 cross country bike ride can be enjoyable For other sports: You can practice football, slackline, ultimate, horse riding, scooter and skate board, pétanque.
