“Nice for a stroll”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Sadly you can't ly on the grass in summer. Good for a stroll on a sunday, because you can feel the sun. The streets of the city are too narrow to feel the sun.

“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

I found this park by accident on my way to Avenue Van Dyke and i was totally charmed by it. It was like something out of a movie. There is a charming little carousel for children, a Roman ruin, the prettiest little bridge with a landscaped brook and a little domed temple. Look at the photos and judge for your self. there is also an amazing view of the Arc de Triumph from the gates at Avenue Van Dyke.

“small garden in the middle of Paris”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

There are some bigger, some more spectacular, but if you stay in this area and just want to enjoy the nature (like for a jogging), this is a very nice place
