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.

When in Paris, one must enjoy the sight of her, the Eiffel Tower. This place comes to life at night. At the top of the hour, every hour until 0100, one can watch her lights come on. We had two tours, one during the day and one at night so no regrets, we saw her at all times and then some. She is best admired from across the River Seine. You will get the best pics from there. You will thank me later. There are many food vendors as well as souvenir vendors here, a little for everyone in the Family. They is also always a steady supply of taxis to take you back to your hotel so do not worry.
Obviously it's beautiful- the Eiffel Tower is right there! But I also liked the energy of the place- lots of people out relaxing on the grass. As always, be careful of pick pockets, but we were able to find some other tourists who were able to take a picture for us and ended up having very nice conversation here.
Very nice to walk around and relax amongst the trees. Could use another public restroom or two and would like to see the people constantly trying to sell you things removed from the park. Even still it is a nice escape and has plenty of places to sit.
This is where one of the beauties of the world, Eiffel tower is located. The best time to be here is after 8 in the evening. The Eiffel tower will be full of glowing lights until 1 a m. Its definitely a spectacular view. People will be here whole night boozing and lighting cigarettes.
good relaxing greeny area around the Eiffel tower. Nice ambiance at night when the lights on the tower is on. Best view of the tower is on the boat tour of river Seine. Do the boat at night. its nicer. You can also see the Eiffel tower well from the other side of the river
