Our favourite parks and gardens

Playground, picnic area, merry-go-round, bike, pony...

Paris counts near 500 parks, gardens and neighborhood squares. At the first rays of sun, we will want to put the nose out and go green. In the summer, prepare your picnic basket and we take advantage of the big lawns or the shade of the trees. The days of heat wave, swimsuits and fountains for children (at the acclimatization garden or André Citroen Park). And to have fun, we take them to the gardens with playgrounds, pony rides, miniature golf, carousel or even spider webs... enough to keep your kids occupied and entertained for a good part of the day. Here are our favorite gardens and parks in Paris!
