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.

  • Well served by buses, the Montsouris Park deserves to go do a ride to escape a moment the noise and bustle of the capital. With a little luck, a squirrel will be near you. In any case you'll make a pretty ballad.

  • This park which is left about the axis of the RER (which generates no noise), with a Lake of a good volume backed by a heavily wooded hill, a lot of lawns. Passing above RSP we got the rest of the Park which the layout is much more airy. It can be suggested to cross the boulevard Jourdan and walking around the campus of the "international city" which present the particularity of having pavilions whose architecture is specific to the Foundation which manages the Pavilion which hosts students.

  • If I told you to go there on a rainy November day and tell you it's beautiful, you won't believe me and you would be right. But this park is a sacred lung green from spring to autumn, it's worth. A small passageway to the weather station of Paris Montsouris, who made his reputation, and let's not forget those who do not go on vacation and profit. Let's keep it, it's a symbol of intergenerational conviviality.

  • A really great park, quite big for Paris. As a little bonus there is a bit of ups and downs so it's perfect for a quick run. Obviously, a nice picnic is always nice too !
  • Great place to visit or to have picnic with friends. One of the best parks in Paris !
  • Actually a nice Park. Not flat dirt. Was five then saw dirty water. Please can me. Lake cries.
