Garden
“The Tuileries Garden takes its name from the tile factories that stood where Queen Catherine de Medici had the Tuileries Palace built in 1564, which has since disappeared. The famous king's gardener, André Le Nôtre, gave it from 1664 its current appearance of a French garden. The garden, which separates the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde, is a place for walking and culture for Parisians and tourists where the statues of Maillol rub shoulders with those of Rodin or Giacometti. The two pools are ideal for relaxation. The Orangery Museum in which visitors admire Monet’s works is located southwest of the Tuileries. From March to December, free tours only in French are organized. And for those who love cotton candy, rides and thrills, come to the Fête des Tuileries, from June to August.”

“This is a hidden park on top of the Montparnasse train station. Most Parisians don't even know it exists! Enter the train station, find track 1 - 2. There's a metal staircase to the left. Take it all the way up until you're on top of the train station. It's a great picnic spot, lovely grass planes. There's also a museum of the Résistance there.”

“A great place to relax -- or run around in. It's a very safe, lovely park with three playgrounds for kids of different ages, ping-pong tables, some exercise equipment and lots of lawn to sit out on. On Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings, there are marionette shows for little kids, a fabulous old-fashioned little carrousel, and donkey rides. ”
