Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Nice park with great kids areas. Also easily accessible from the RER.
  • This peaceful park has lush trees full of birds, flowers and a lake and bridge. For the kids there are several playgrounds, a puppet theater and a mini carousel.
  • One of the nicest parks in Paris 13th-14th quarters. Has a British approach to landscape, includes a lake with black swans (for real!), various cafe's, a few playgrounds and even a children's theater. Signs designate public (municipality provided) WiFi areas.
  • My go to park for runs or picnics. Small lake and sloped landscape provides nice walks with varied views. Try to spot the green parrots who live here, an invasive species that arrived in the 70's!
  • Great park on the southern edge of Paris. Not too crowded and very pretty.
