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!

I recently visited Parc Monceau in Paris. I was pleasantly charmed by this park. It may not be as well known as Jardin des Tuileries or Jardin du Luxembourg, but I liked it better so it is definitely worth a visit. Spend a beautiful afternoon picknicking on the grass, sitting on a bench, strolling around. Bring your kids as they... More

From the first rays of sun lawns Parc Monceau are taken over by all Parisian avid outdoors, freshness and friendliness. Quiet oasis in the middle of a dense neighborhood and active, all lovers of greenery meet there. At the exit of schools and offices, wildlife flows and takes possession of this nature square to take a drink, sunbathe, chat, flirt... More

There is no doubt that the Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens are the cream of Paris parks, but there are other parks well worth a look. The Bois de Boulogne is one, but it's not that easy to get to and is so CentralParkNY huge without internal transport that you have to be keen and have time. Park Monceau is a... More

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 journey on its own if you really love parks and/or people watching.

This is a great park hidden in plain site. It's worth the visit. You are guaranteed to see the full flavors of Paris within this park. Take a few minutes to view some of the hidden gems

Located on boulevard de Courcelles, at the metro station Monceau, it is not a very large park and it is discreet, but it is really a beautiful and green park. It is very well maintained. The atmosphere is peaceful. It is a nice area to sit on benches and read or have lunch. There are beautiful Haussmann styles buildings all... More
