Lac des Minimes, Paris
(5/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
Relax during a leisurely stroll at Lac des Minimes, an artificial lake in Bois de Vincennes. The crescent-shaped body of water covers 6 hectares (15 acres) and features three scenic islands. Set in a large green park with many old trees, the area offers scenic views and shelters families of ducks, squirrels, and even herons. Built upon the former 12th-century convent area of the Roman Catholic Order of Minims, the area was filled by water from Marne River in 1866. Get out on the lake with a paddleboat rental. With our online itinerary creator, Paris attractions like Lac des Minimes can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
