Parks & nature in Paris

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.”

Botanical Garden
“I used to go and play there when I was a kid, as I grew up in the Quartier Latin. My Dad would also bring me and have me read the name of the different "exotic" trees... One of Paris most taken car of garden. You can have a walk or a rest there, visit the greenhouse or the fantastic "Musée de l'évolution". ”
