Parc Montsouris, Paris

4.7
#15 of 50 in Parks in Paris
Nature / Park
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.

  • A nice wooded park well located in Paris. It is nice to walk around. Really nice to rest. A haven of summer freshness.

  • A really nice Park with its Lake. You're in Paris but you are transported in a green area. Benches are installed everywhere. The Park is very well kept. A lot of people as soon as the weather. Several entries on the side of campus or avenue Reille.

  • I love this park is small and beautiful. Is right in front of the campus (the other place to visit very interesting!), we took advantage of the opening night evening picnic, cool despite the heat's June 21, amazing and exhausting summer solstice. Wonderful. Not so many know him, maybe it's a bit outside the usual tourist destinations. If you are a lover of parks and gardens like me can't miss it!

  • Great place for picnics, exercising or just relaxing and reading a book. It would be perfect with better ice cream shops.
  • Lovely park. Small and cosy, great for picnic or just reading a book on a bench.
  • Nice getaway park in the city. Calm and relaxing. Good for morning runs.
  • Very nice park. I would have preferred the roads not to be in tar, but maybe necessary to easily manage the rain.
  • Nice parc for sportman, for outing, and also for picnic between friends

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
