Top park recommendations from locals

Garden
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”

Fountain
“This fountain is a piece of art located in Jardin du Luxembourg. Its mythological sculpture is surrounded by a 50 meters long bassin and peacful plane trees. Clearly the most enchanting place in the heart of the 6th quarter.”
