Champ De Mars - Review
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.

Champ De Mars, Paris Reviews
Beautiful grounds leading up to the Eiffel Tower. When we were here they were undergoing updates for safety and had security checks to get into parts of it which kind of blocked off certain areas. Even with some clutter and separation it was mostly near the base of the tower and the champ de mars extends much further out. Great area to have a picnic or lay in the grass and enjoy the weather.
Really nice place to go for a walk or run. Wide open space and they put chairs out to sit and enjoy. There are even reclined chairs spread throughout. If you look close enough, you’ll see they use goats on the sloped areas being used to manage the lawn.
Hanging out in the Champ de Mars, enjoying some food or just enjoying the view of the Eiffel Tower, is great. One of my best memories from my visit to Paris. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is the experience was routinely interrupted every few minutes by the army of men walking around offering, “beer, wine, champagne, cigarettes” or mini light up Eiffel Towers. When you say no thank you or ignore them they go away but are quickly replaced by one of their counterparts. If they could be restricted to one area that would have been awesome as having a picnic dinner in front of a lit up Eiffel Tower is a must do if you’re in Paris.
Nice elegant place right around the glorious Eiffel Tower. We went there around 8:00 AM and it was pretty empty so we took really great pics with no crowd around. There were couple people walking their dogs and others jogging, but it was pretty clean and empty.
Champ de Mars is a place for locals and tourist to chill, relax and have a good time with friends, family or beloved one. People come here to wait for the sunset of the Eiffel tower as there is no better place for it. Tourists take pictures of the Eiffel and Locals bring beer, drinks and music to have a little party as some of them are also dancing. Senegalese are selling water, champagne and beer what is a little annoying since there are so many. Champ de Mars is a great park to see and visit for Parisians and visitors since its very relaxing and once the sunset is gone, the Eiffel tower starts it spectacular light show which makes it a dessert to the eye for a magnificent finish of the day.
