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.

Lovely grounds, old structures and water features. Quite popular, crowd numbers typical of a city park. Not normally a big fan of inner city parks, but Parc Monceau an exception. Wish a park like Monceau was near my house.
A go to park in Paris. Good reliable and rather popular park in Paris center. Great choice for those with a car, because parking is usually plentiful. Good for picnics, parties and just to hang out. Seems to be very popular with joggers and people who walk a bit faster than usual.
One of the most beautiful parks in all of Paris. Has a little lake, beautiful statues, playing ground for the kids, tracks for running, many benches both afar from the bitter tracks and alongside them. This is a popular place to work out, read or go with your kids. There is a carousel and kiosks as well. Highly recommended for any occasion.
Arguable one of the most beautiful parks in Paris located off of Metro Line 2. The park has restrooms that are almost immaculate. Rides and horses for children. A little restaurant that serves crepes, ice cream and other novelties.
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 you're 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.
