The greenery, tranquility and architectural peculiarities Parc Monceau are pleasant for a stroll with the family, couple or with his pair of sneakers. For me this is the third option which is where I park my fetish for running sessions. Around the park is just 1km battery, but even without this practical side, the atmosphere is very nice for jogging.

This is a nice parc where a lot of people go running and there you have few nice places where you can relax. It is also worth to see very big tree.

I went to this park with my 2 year old daughter and we had a great time as there is a kids playground around the back of the park. The layout reminds me of a very small version of Central Park in New York. The Luxembourg gardens are also another great park to visit but they often have art exhibitions... More

Parc Monceau is a genteel historic park in the center of the 8th arrondisement. There are a number of lovely private residences on the site and beautiful grounds with play areas for kids. Well worth a visit!

the park is one of Paris's few open green spaces, so it is already a treasure on this crowded city. There are ponds (drained in winter), lawns and an array of follies and statues. Not really a destination or a sight for most tourists...

Have a stroll here on my way to the Musée Nissim de Camondo on a hot summer day. In front of me was a busy park packed with local Parisians, families and kids, joggers. A needed green space for the city people, but not interesting enough for a special visit. I didn’t find it attractive mainly because it was not... More

We walk through this park most days. It is always kept beautifully and it has a calm, quiet feel about it. The ring of apartments in the 8th arrondissement create a picturesque back-drop and the simple park amusements are great for kids.

We were staying in the area in an apartment & noticed the Parc Monceau was just down the road from us s we decided to stroll through the gardens & grounds on a sunny afternoon. Location - at the junction of Boulevard de Courcelles, Rue de Prony and Rue Georges Berger in the 8th arrondissement. The closest metro is Monceau... More

I suggest visiting during the artist fares - also explore two museums right in the park vicinity. Is in the middle of historical district - visit the first Bank of France if you're curious.
