Parc Monceau - Review
Paris drops in here when the sun peeks out, whether to jog or picnic. Flowers, alittle lake and statues decorate this children’s favourite. There are even some fake ruins you can pretend to discover. An excellent spot for people watching and general chilling, this is widely regarded to be one of the most attractive parks in the world; even Claude Monet painted this park no less than five different times. It’s unique in Paris for being in the “English” layout. Walking through here, you’ll see scaled down architecture, called follies, which include an Egyptian pyramid, a Chinese fort, a Dutch windmill, and Corinthian pillars. Scattered here and there are statues of some famous French personalities, for example: Guy de Maupassant,Frédéric Chopin, Charles Gounod, Ambroise Thomas, Alfred de Musset, and Edouard Pailleron. Beekeepers will find this place is of special interest.

Parc Monceau, Paris Reviews
Very beautiful and elegant park, though the atmosphere is very down to earth. Lot's of grassy lots to picnic at, pony rides and a big carousel for the kids. The trees are just gorgeous. Only one WC...
This is a popular park in the west of Paris. Countless childhood memories aside, it is a well tended English garden, with large lawns to relax in the summer, a merry-go-round, a waffle/coffee stand and a small playground.
Lush and green, enough space and peacefull. It appeared to me that the French like their rest. In this park there are different heights, there is some body of water to sit at and multiple spots where you can fill up your water bottle. It's clean and quiet and if your not too fond of burning away in the sun, not to worry: plenty of trees to provide shade. I had a really lovely picknick/dinner with the wife. Also, there are public toilets near the entrance.
I work just around the corner of this beautiful park so I've been a frequent visitor on my breaks to either wander in the wondrous snow, lie amongst the spring flowers or get some summer sun while I eat my brunch. I'm yet to experience the autumnal glory of Monceau but I look forward to it. Whether you want to go for a run, have a picnic, set up a sackline or do some yoga this historical park has got you covered.
Just the most beautiful and easy going Park in Paris. You can lay out on the grass - a rare thing in the french capital.
