Parc Monceau, Paris

4.5
#10 of 75 in Parks in Paris
Painted by Monet numerous times, Parc Monceau is an elegant green space in the middle of cosmopolitan Paris. Check out the statues, entrance rotunda, and the surrounding mansions. Thanks to city planner Haussmann, this precious slice of parkland was reserved for the enjoyment and leisure of the people of Paris. The park's plan is unusual in France, due to its casual, English-style layout. This contrasts with other Parisian parks, such as the formal Luxembourg Gardens and Tuileries. Scaled-down architectural replicas are scattered through the park, including an Egyptian pyramid, a Dutch windmill, and a Chinese fort.

  • The Parc Monceau is a setting of greenery in Paris and very well maintained. With superb grids, building stylish tucked and the small gems of architecture. Not too big not too small, it has the ideal size for a walk with children.

  • If there is a park in Paris more beautiful than the Luxemburg Gardens this is it. Rolling hills, great monuments and simply beautiful surrounds make this a wonderful experience.  more »

  • The park is enormous with a carousel and a swing for the children to have fun whenever they'll visit this park. Also a mini park for the infants to enjoy and a very wide field to sit and lay down to whenever they feel like doing it. And of course benches everywhere to sit on. Best for jogging and I almost forgot about the rink for the scooters, roller skates and roller blades.
  • We really enjoyed spending some time in this lovely park which was near our hotel. After picking up a to-go lunch from La Coquin Gourmande we walked to the park to sit and enjoy the tasty food. Hundreds of locals were in the park enjoying their lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. After lunch, we strolled through the park admiring the beautiful sculptures and landscaping. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • No wonder this park has inspired painters such as Monet! It isn't that big, but it's usually very lively! Always a pleasure to walk there or pass by when running!
  • A very lovely park. Good for a nice afternoon stroll. Also has many drinking water fountains to replenish your water supplies.
  • A nice park closed to the champs elysees. There is a playground for kids from 1yo as well as grass you can walk on.

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.
