    Very nice Park for walking, running. It might be out of Porte Maillot and walk or run to Roland Garros. The night is somewhat dangerous, do not recommend.

    A vast forest park on the outskirts of Paris. As the forest near the city of unusual size. Think various people over the weekend were spending freely. It's not as hearsay in the boat near the Museum of fine arts, however, say this is, there are attractions. Those who want to enjoy nature in a good place. Fly near by metro from the city and running through the bus.

    A beautiful and huge woodland in the heart of Paris - Nature - many species of flowers, trees and other plants, lakes, ducks, geese, swans, resident dogs, garden benches, rowing boats, bars, snack bars and restaurants, people using their bicycles etc. Usually one finds parking spaces with ease in the streets, in the busy avenues is more difficult. Do not expect a friendly reception by the French, French are very boring, unfriendly, they work as if they were making a huge sacrifice and an overwhelming favor to you. Take with you potable water and snack, food and water in France cost the price of gold. Attention families: there are regions used by prostitution in vehicles parked along some stretches of avenues and access streets.

    Lovely green space in the city with walkers, bikers, joggers. It's a beautiful peaceful walk along The Seine along the west side under the trees where the awesome houseboats are docked. One of my favorite days in Paris!

    Very nice forest just next to Paris. There is a big park next to it good for walks and attractions for kids.

    One of the 2 forests of Paris. Worth a visit. Try Challet des Iles restaurant, Jardin d'Aclimatation if you have kids or Louis Vuitton Foundation -great building and expos.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
