“Beautiful Grounds”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Luxembourg Gardens is fantastic for children of all ages. Take a picnic, and hang out in the sun. Rent a small sailboat to float in the fountain. Walk through the gardens and down the lovely paths. Play tennis, or sit on a bench and relax. I love the relaxed atmosphere at Luxembourg Gardens.

Be warned: the children's play area is cool, but you need to pay to get in. Even for adults. Also there are little kiddie "rides" that require a small fee. I paid for my kids to use the playground and they had a marvelous time, although I would venture to say that the play area is primarily directed to ages 3-6.

“Lovely Garden”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This was a beautiful garden and appeared to have more flowers than others I visited while in Paris. It is very rewarding to witness how both locals and visitors make use of the gardens throughout Paris and a wonderful place to simply sit by the fountain and enjoy the sun or maybe pack a lunch and enjoy a meal.

“What a chill out. ”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

We headed here late afternoon and chilled out with the locals in the fading sunshine. No nasty groups of Gypsies trying to nick your stuff by thrusting a clipboard, sign here as others flock to your bags.
Just heavenly.

“A lovely place for a leisurely stroll”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Away from the crowds and the traffic noise, this lovely park holds it's arms open to surround you with peace and quiet. Parisians are there with their children, playing with sailboats in the water, riding tricycles; and lovers are walking hand in hand through the perfectly groomed grounds. We even watched an outdoor ping-pong match. Benches are strewn throughout, in case you want to sit for awhile and soak it all in. We enjoyed it very much!

“Perfect place to relax and take in the atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Stopped here to have a break from exploring Paris by foot and was impressed with the beauty of the gardens. Would be a great place to bring a baguette and have a lovely picnic lunch.
