  • At first glance it is a beautiful forest nestled in among citizen, just at the end of Champees Elysee. Beautiful. Can walk, jog, cycle or ride a horse. In the early afternoon, at the exit of the Foundation Vuitton and heading toward Avenue Foch, passing through the Park pay attention and you can see: ladies "happy at work" with emergency location adjoining where carry out their duties in broad daylight; "waste" arising from such benefits thrown into small ponds or in the grass; homeless for carrying out their own punishment, garbage. To be one of the most famous parks needs just a nice clean.

  • This is a great place to visit if you have a very energetic dog, like me, that you want to give some freedom to run around, and get some of that hyper energy out of his/her system. You can either stay close to the road at the edge of the forest, or you can go deeper into it, and you will find some cool little lakes and other bodies of water. Every time I went here I did not find myself too surrounded by other people, which can be a nice change of pace sometimes, when living in a big city such as Paris.
  • Such a beautiful park and view of the lake with a great spot for slacklining under the pine trees. There's also the Eiffel Tower playing peekaboo in the distance which looks great when it's lit up at night.
  • We enjoyed a nice stroll through the park and then rented a rowboat for an hour (12 euros). We enjoyed the company of some ducks that followed us on the water and short views of the Eiffel tower
  • Good place for relaxation during weekend especially if the weather is good but there should be toilet that someone will supervise so that it will not use as free hotel There should be police roaming around too To control some indecent proposals in the area
  • Great place for hiking or running, especially when it’s sunny. It is also nice to have picnics and to spend time with family.
