Peaceful place!

Love this park! Relaxing and refreshed. If you are kind of naturelover, should visit there. 여행중에 많이 피곤하셔서 쉬는 시간이 필요할때 가면 너무 좋을거 같아요! 저는 아침 조깅으로 다녀왔는데 공원 크기도 너무 크지도 않고 작지도 않아서 더... read more

Love this park! Relaxing and refreshed. If you are kind of naturelover, should visit there. 여행중에 많이 피곤하셔서 쉬는 시간이 필요할때 가면 너무 좋을거 같아요! 저는 아침 조깅으로 다녀왔는데 공원 크기도 너무 크지도 않고 작지도 않아서 더 좋았어요 ㅎ 산책하며 둘러보시기에 좋아요! 주위에 브런치 먹을 수 있는 까페들도 있고 좀 더 내려오시면 여러종류의 가게들이 있어서 구경하기도 좋아요:)

This is one of the most beautiful parks in Paris, over to the west of the centre and in the nouveau boulevard areas close to the Arc de Triomphe area. It gives you a different aspect of the city.

On your walks through the 1st, find your way to the beautiful gates and get into 'paris living'. Stroll down the paths or sit and enjoy some conversation. I spent hours every morning chatting with locals and tourists alike .

We discovered this on one of our walks and LOVED it. It's filled with of people walking down the paths, local retirees sitting on benches, and kids since there is a little kids' carousel and an duck pond. I highly recommend taking a walk through here! It's November, but it was plenty warm in a down jacket and jeans.

Parc Monceau is only 500m from the Arc de Triomphe but feels like a million miles away. It is a lovely place to come for a relaxing stroll or eat lunch on one of the many park benches.

On our last day in Paris we were looking for free things to do and this park was one of the suggestions given to me. It is accessible directly from the metro (monceau stop) and is a little gem. There is a shop and cafe but the highlights are the gardens and follies that are scattered throughout the park. It... More

I visited here with my book and relaxed for an afternoon. There were a lot of students, seniors, and moms with babies around. The park is beautiful and filled with statues and fountains. Great to read for an afternoon!

A lovely place to walk or just sit and people watch. Very relaxing on a glorious Autumn day. Surrounded by what appear expensive but charming apartments

An urban oasis; great for family and couple to walk through. Paths wind through the park and are punctuated by Belle Epoque monuments or French artists/writers/poets and their muses. As others mention the two "Less Arts Decoratifs" museums along the edge of the park are interesting. For lunch try Place de Rio de Janeiro.
