  • One of the green lungs of Paris, of Roland Garros to the jardin d'Acclimatation Bagatelle and two beautiful lakes for boating.

  • For tourists, I'm not sure that's a must... but for Parisians who want to breathe... it is what it takes. I'm going to walk an hour each week story to clear my...

  • but where could walk us the dog in a quiet, friendly and nice place? The wood of Boulogne by golly! magnificent. a good walk around the lower Lake with 3.5 they, very easy on a path marked around the Lake. charming. then a short tour through the jardin d'Acclimatation for small €3 entrance don't deprive yourself! then stop by the greenhouses of auteuil, magical magic. good to know: no dog to the jardin d'Acclimatation or claws of auteuil. good visit!

  • 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.
