A truly elegant corner of 19th Century Paris. It's a beautifully-designed and exquisitely-maintained park from the Haussmann era, surrounded by lovely mansions. Nannies push baby carriages, senior citizens sit on benches and chat. Peaceful and beautiful.

Hi, I was in Park Monceau on Friday and there were lots of dogs, most on leads and I think that some dogs were not on leads when we were there. It was very early in the morning.
