This beautiful park, which has inspired many famous paintings, was created in the 18th century for Philippe Egalité, the cousin of Louis XVI and the father of King Louis-Philippe I.

Lovely gardens, well maintained with lots of ornamental features. Very tranquil. We wouldn't travel miles to visit but definitely worth a visit if in the vicinity.

Very nice. It was not on my original plan but I stopped by waiting for one of the museums to open up. Loved it and was a nice relaxing spot

Paris has a plethora of beautiful parks. Add Parc Monceau to the list of "should see. " It's a small park with lovely statues throughout, a scenic pond lined with columns, a quaint bridge and picturesque grotto. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful, yet not too big to walk around. Has two lovely playgrounds and a pond. Used by locals, so you will blend in!

Paris has so many great parks, this was one of my favourites because it felt really local (very different from the tourist filled Luxumbourg and Tuileries). It's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area visiting Musee Jacquemart- Andre, and may be worth the...More

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.
