One aspect of Paris that shouldn’t be overlooked by any tourists visiting this city is the quality of the parks. There are some amazing parks right across this city that are perfect additions to an itinerary. Here are 5 of the best gardens and parks that you must visit in Paris.
1- Jardin du Luxembourg :
This park is one of the most popular with tourists, and it isn’t hard to see why. The location means that it is a great place to stop and play on a sunny day in the city. There are lots of games to keep the kids entertained too – from swingboats and carousels to puppet shows and other rides.
2- Jardin d'Acclimatation :
is a must-visit attraction for tourists because it is one of the city’s best amusement parks. In fact, it was the very first public amusement park and established by Napoleon III. There is so much to see and do here with the rides, petting zoo and eating establishments.
3- Jardin des Plantes :
is an additional attraction at the ever-popular Museum of Natural history. The site has been a public garden since the revolution and often holds exhibits related to the shows within the museum. You might stumble across something unexpected.
4- Parc de la Villette :
The Parc de la Villette
is a must for tourists in the height of summer as it plays host to an open-air cinema series and other cultural events. When the films aren’t rolling, there is still plenty to see and enjoy in this diverse, family-friendly park.
5- Tuileries Garden :
Finally, we can’t overlook one of the oldest and most extravagant gardens in the city. This royal garden is a great route between the Louvre
and Champs-Elysses. However, visitors should take some time to stop and smell the roses in this beautifully manicured garden.
