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.

  • Pleasant park for relaxing moments, make a picnic near a a lake, valued by Parisians and tourists, also nice for nice walks. 
  • A breath of fresh air in Paris South. Served by the T3 and crossed by the Rer B coming to burrow under his Hill, this park designed in curves is pleasantly undulating. A slope less steep than buttes chaumont, so ideal for a summer NAP! Many trees provide welcome shade in the summer. For athletes, a pretty loop 1.5 km of height, and the outdoor summer gym. Ballads in Pony and games for children. The most attentive watch of Great Green parrots (!) go between the trees, and perhaps even a crocodile on the island of the pond...

  • It is a fairly extensive Park divided by the train tracks. On one side an esplanade of lush lawn and the other side there is a pond. In summer it is full of people who lies down to catch the Sun, makes snacks, playing children... and throughout the year, you'll see people playing sport, running

  • 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.
