Paris Parks Overview

Jardins du Trocadéro - Park | Landmark in Paris

The City of Light has an incredibly diverse system of parks, some old, some new, but all worth checking out. In fact, there’s an estimated 400 parks in Paris, which means you better get to work if you want to set foot in all of them.

The most famous of all Paris parks is probably Jardin du Luxembourg, full of statues and the famous Fontaine de Médicis, which people gather around to relax while annoying kids throw rocks in the water.

The Bois de Boulogne is one of the biggest parks, tucked along the western edge of the city and originally commissioned by none other than Napoleon to create a French version of London’s famous Hyde Park.

Bois de Vincennes is another big Paris park, home not only to the stunning Château de Vincennes castle, but also an expansive floral garden called Parc Floral.

Champ de Mars has hosted several world exhibitions since its 19th Century beginnings, while Jardin Atlantique is a much more modern (albeit small) garden set atop the Montparnasse railway station.

Other splendid Paris parks include Jardin des Plantes (the oldest garden in Paris), Jardin des Tuileries (between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde), and the Jardins des Champs-Élysées, which borders the famous Champs-Élysées avenue. So many parks to see in Paris. Paris rocks.
