  • Autumn may be the perfect station to visit the Bois de Boulogne. The vegetation yellow hues to several acquires red. Take a morning walk calmly or sit on the benches in front of the Lake. Also very good for those who want to exercise. Advise the happened only during the day.

  • We were walking through this forest to the Foundation Louis Vuitton. We entered the Square Alexandre et René Parodi, we went through the Jardin d'Acclimatation and saw the building of the Foundation. Then left from the back of it, by the Route of la Muette à Neuilly, and came out of the Bois de Boulogne to go to La Défense. What we saw I gave the feeling of greenery, flowers and trees, but mixed with much asphalt and heavy traffic.

  • 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.
