What people say

"Parc Monceau, located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, is a historic and elegant park known for its beauty, tranquility, and cultural significance. Created in the 18th century by the Duke of Chartres, Philippe d'Orléans, the park was designed to resemble an English garden with picturesque elements. Visitors to Parc Monceau can enjoy its wide alleys lined with chestnut trees, charming bridges over small bodies of water, and meticulously maintained lawns adorned with sculptures and architectural follies. The park's serene atmosphere and classical charm have attracted artists and writers over the centuries, including painters like Claude Monet and Édouard Manet."
"This is a lesser known park amongst tourists, but it’s a catch-all for Parisians. There are playgrounds, lawns, statues, a duck pond, and trails. This is the perfect spot to have an evening picnic and glass of wine!"
"Lesser known than the Tuleries or Luxembourg gardens, but this is my favorite park in Paris. It's stunning, not too big, and never feels touristy. Would recommend taking an afternoon to read here. "
