This is a good place for a stroll or to take a packed lunch or picnic and watch theomnipresent joggers. If you're here it's worth heading across to the Cite Universitaire to see Le Corbusier's Swiss Pavillion and Maison du Bresil which are close by.

The perfect place to discover a real Paris and the real Parisians walking around, having rests, kids playing and jogger running. A nice alternative to Luxembourg. You can take the opportunity and visit the international university campus in front of Montsouris.
