I like running at this park in the south of Paris to escape the crowds and diversify my routine! I go during the day, when the students from the nearby university are in class. One lap around the outer paved road is 1.5K. In autumn, the leaves turn incredible colors—especially the large tree in the middle of the lake. It becomes bright yellow. In the spring and summer, there is a stage that hosts live music. No need to bring headphones!
WHY I GO: Running in this park is fantastic. Just 3 stops from the Jardin du Luxembourg y RER B, it's nicely removed from the hassle and bustle of the city. WHEN: In Summer time, it's great for picnic! In Autumn, the colours you'll see are just breathtaking!
Pretty, hilly park overlooking a lake (15 minute walk away). There are plenty of play areas for kids. Note Parkruns (free, time runs) take take place here every Saturday morning at 9am.
Park created under Napoléon III & inspired by parks in London, popular with local students

“Award winning pastry chef. A must-try for delicious pastries. They also do breakfast, and Brunch on the weekends.”
“The catacombs of Paris are a real hidden world of more than 300 km of underground passages. The rooms are filled from floor to ceiling with bones and skulls, placed there following a saturation of the cemeteries. If you want to try the adventure know that the catacombs hide some very surprising secrets! ”
“Très jolie rue piétonne pour faire son marché, manger des spécialités françaises et boire un verre ! Very pleasant pedestrian street to buy french produits, eat or have a drink!”
“You can walk through this park to get to Porte d'Italie metro. It contains a farm which is great for kids. ”
