Why locals recommend it
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.

Tips from locals
Hosting the Senate and the Medicis foutain, the Luxembourg is a great place to relax on the grass after a walk in the Latin Quarter!
While at the luxembourg gardens, there are small poneys available for 10-15mn rides. It's super fun for kids. In order to find them, enter the parc from the gates on Place Edmond Rostand, reach the central basin, and cross over to the stairs opposite. The poneys are just nearby. Checkout the map in…
There is a nice playground for kids, very beautiful lawns to have picnic and a good restaurant, where you will eat under the trees, at the very heart of the gardens. The restaurant is good (though the service is slow...), but the most remarkable asset is the unique location.
