  • In the Bois de Vincennes, the artificial lake Daumesnil is territorially attached to the 12th arrondissement of Paris, the District of Bel-Air. Extended over a dozen hectares, it measures about 800 meters long on 250 wide and has two islands, that of Bercy and Reuilly. On the latter, you will discover a cave and an artificial waterfall as well as a romantic rotunde due to the architect Gabriel Davioud. As you stroll, you will also see the Vincennes pagoda and the Tibetan Buddhist temple of Kagyu-Dzong. Boat rides on the Lake are possible but in good weather, a little patience to wait for his turn. Beautiful place for the walk, the rest... You will also encounter animals in freedom, swans, geese, ducks, peacons...

  • In this month of February, after having sorely missed vitamin D, the Sun that finally points its nose, after the winter mist, we rush to the Bois de Vincennes. And I'm not the only one. The Lake Daumesnil is a haven of bucolic promenade with its beautiful pastel colours, its still stripped trees whose buds point their bulbs. Ducks and swans are always in the décor and benches to pause, allow to observe all this commotion, which announces the beautiful days. The island of Reuilly where the restaurant of the Islands opened its doors, projects itself in the landscape. My ballad allows me to revisit these Zen pilgrims who, stoic are always there to remind us that nothing serves to run.... The big pagoda is closed, I always wondered why? What a pity! I love this place even though, in this season, the trees are still in winter, the boats at rest and very rare flowers. Weeping willows dressed in pale yellow and "plucked" are actively preparing. People are cool and they perceive their pleasure in this peaceful place, under the rays of the Sun that give us a small 17 degrees, anyway! This place is accessible by the tram station T3 "Golden Gate" and the Metro line n ° 8.

  • There's one big playground for small and big kids at the end of the park (on metro porte doree side)
  • One of my favorite places in Paris, nice lake and close to the Bois de Vincennes. There is even a bouddhist monastry. Only hic is that it's always super crowded and you can hear the heavy traffic roads in most of the park....
