Malgré la concurence très forte, le Parc de Bercy est mon parc parisien préféré. Tellement de variété, de faune, de petits endroits calme pour se poser avec ou sans un pique-nique. La classe.Despite the strong competition, the Bercy Park is my favourite Parisian Park. So much variety, wildlife, small places quiet to arise with or without a picnic. The class.show original
I really loved this place and the relaxed vibe. If you are Muslim and need to pray, the Yitzhak Rabin rose garden is not only beautiful but secluded and you won't be bothered.

Not the loviliest in Paris but quite convenient and there's a whole portion of the park that stays open to public at night. Best for late picnic in the summer for that reason. Also some nice and vibeful riverbanks 5 mins away.
This lovely park is located near where we were staying (Ibis Styles Hotel). This part of the Bercy area is generally quite quiet; away from the hustle& bustle and after a day of sightseeing, the Parisian crowds, it is nice come home to this quiet area to relax. We were really pleasantly surprised by this park. There is the outdoor activities area, a carousel and make sure to visit the Jardin Yitzhak Rabin. The garden is very nice - there is a vineyard(!) laden with grapes the time we were there, fruit trees, beautiful flowers and lots of benches to sit around. Ideal for families especially with children, couples who enjoy walking, gardens, parks and quiet time.
This park is a wonderful, with lots of different little "themed" areas within it. At one end is the Bercy Stadium, where an upcoming Scorpions concert was being advertised. In the middle was a grand staircase and water feature leading up to the Seine, dotted with sunbathers. Further on are a small vineyard and adjacent cottage-like museum. At the far end is a "pond" with ducks and turtles, and the Bercy Village shopping area is just beyond that. There's lots more to see here, so allow yourself plenty of time. Sure, there were a couple of homeless people about, and the east end of the park was mobbed by teenagers when a nearby school let out, but I loved this park and I don't think I saw a single other tourist. Combine a trip here with lunch at Bercy Village and a visit to the architecturally stunning Bibliothèque nationale de France just over a pedestrian bridge from the park.
Awesome quiet park with lots of paths and beautiful nature.
