Parc Montsouris, Paris

(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
One of the most colorful Parisian parks, Parc Montsouris was opened in 1878, designed by Alphand for the Baron Haussmann. Long stretches of gently sloping lawns surround a large man-made lake and waterfalls. You'll see bronze statues among the 1,400 trees, which include exotic giant sequoias and ginkgos. The park is featured in the film Cléo de 5 à 7, and is popular with families (there are two playground areas for children) and students.

  • Of the four major parks of Paris, the Montsouris is perhaps the most familiar. Full of lakes, paths, bridges, gardens, lawns and ducks, is between the 13th and the 14th arrondissement, right opposite the Citè Universitaire de Paris. In the summer, is a great space to make your picnic. In the winter, after the snow, is a place of dreams. Within the Park is the excellent restaurant Pavillon Montsouris, with your balcony open to the green in the summer months.

  • In front of the Cité universitaire, Montsouris Park has a large enough size that lends itself perfectly to run. In addition, he has a relief and an expanse of water that accentuate its charm. Good weather weekends, the Park is mobbed for a picnic. A Board can't seem too late to 1 h Park or looking for a place to put in the Park.
