Parc Monceau, Paris
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. For Parc Monceau and beyond, use our Paris itinerary planner to get the most from your Paris vacation.

  • It is a park that is very large, is very close to the Arc de Triomphe, ideal for those who need nature and escape the noise of the city or doing sports. It has several inputs and you see people jogging, children (since it has several schools there close) and families weekend. It is very quiet. And the neighborhood that is on the other side is also very cute, has a market every day (ideal for more local life).

  • Parc Monceau is only 500m from the Arc de Triomphe but feels like a million miles away. It is a lovely place to come for a relaxing stroll or eat lunch on one of the many park benches. 
  • Nice Park, not too big, but full of life and with a wide variety of trees. One of the many beautiful green areas of the French capital.

  • I absolutely love this park. First of all it's beautiful, the location is great, there's an antique carousel which kids love and an ice cream place right next to it. The open field invites for a picnic, or read your book on a brush under one of the ancient trees. Dreamful, this wonderful park smack in the middle of Paris is worth your time.
  • Greatest park in the north west Paris. Large enough to break from the city noise and have some fresh air. Their is a nice path following the fences were people are running every evening (may be dusty in the summer). Large central alley were kids can practice scooter or skateboard. There is some lawn for having a snack and banches in every corner of the park. Enjoy
  • Huge park with kids area. Great place to have a jog in the morning. Beautiful place with lots of bench to sit around for brunch and chilling. Totally love this place for its zen-ness and nature.
  • Good place to go for a leisurely walk or a run around the 1km loop. The lawns are great to collapse and /or picnic / read / whatever. Best time is weekday in the morning, not so crowded and the children are less obnoxious.
  • Lovely little park in the heart of Paris! Lots of crisscrossing running trails that make each time around the park a slightly different adventure.
