“Amazing park with winding paths and a beautiful pergola atop the highest point that you can climb up to for a great view. Also two great bars/cafés with outdoor seating. Great place for joggers to run around the lake, and lots of nooks and crannies to discover. Also great for picnics, walks and free morning tai chi classes. ”

Neighbourhood
“The most beautiful park in Paris... Beware, you'll have to climb to deserve it. In the summertime, you'll most likely step into open electro parties at the Kiosque à Musique. Otherwise, inside of the parc, fetch the Rosa Bonheur (joyful bistro) or Pavillon Puebla (trendy bistro).”
