Parc Montsouris, Paris
(4.7/5 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.

  • Very nice Park, especially in week (since the weekend, a lot of people, especially in good weather). A lot of very different trees, a small lake around which it is pleasant to arise, different places to grab a light meal or a snack. Children can enjoy Pony as well as a place to play with swings, Castle wood etc. Very nice colors in the fall!

  • Located close to cite universitaire this park is a perfect spot for a relaxation. It may not be as famous and beautiful as other parks around the city, but it's more down to earth.

  • 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.
