This park is a good definition of irony; its long history of war training offset by it’s famed Monument to Peace. But then again, it’s said that if you want peace, prepare for war.During the 16th century, sword and sandals took over the original field here from grapes and vegetables when war-training maneuvers began. If you invented a time machine and peeked into the past, you’d see as many as 10000 men at a time could be seen practicing at a time, leading it to be named after the God of War. Eventually the grounds became associated with Ecole Militaire, the academy that trained Napoleon. Today, the park is nice place to sit down a enjoy a beautiful, uninterrupted view of the Eiffel Tower, which can be had from many perspectives. Like every other park woth it’s while, it’s a good place for a picnic. Your kids might enjoy the flowers and playgrounds.

Enormous park, that is part of Versailles Palace if I understand correctly. It's very well kept and you'll find many statues, fountains and garden mazes that have been in place since the time of the king. There are boats and club cars for rent, places where you can get coffee and snacks. A great place to take your family on a sunny day.
Was an amazing experience seeing one of the seven wonders. I highly recommend seeing it from above from the Effie tower. But afterwords definitely stroll through the gardens are lovely. The locals and food it's all so breath taking the experience is truly transcending. The culture shock makes you feel alien at first but once you embrace gosh its hard to go home, you'll want to live there forever. France truly overtakes you.
The place offers great view but, as you can see, the grass is damaged by the thousands of tourists passing every day. Also, you need to be always aware of the people trying to sell you souvenirs, they are there day and night. So if you want to have a picnic, better go to one of the parks and gardens nearby where you can enjoy a meal in peace. But if you want to take beautiful photos, this is the perfect spot.
A beautiful place where one can see the Paris city at a glance. Extremely clean and well maintained. This place is great for a day picnic with friends and family. A place to ideally sit for the whole day and relax. A well spent leisurely day.
Beautiful lovely place to have a nice picnic with friends and family. Even though Paris might be not very safe city that place is extremely safe, guarded by many couples of armed guards. Bee bites me so I scream like child then guards almost run to me to save my life. I was impressed how careful they were. Also there is amazing view for Eiffel tower, great place for pictures and walk distance from cheap wine shops.
