Estimated Time

The Bois de Boulogne (French pronunciation: ​[bwa.d(ə).bu.lɔɲ]) is a large public park located along the western edge of the 16th arrondissement of Paris, near the suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt and Neuilly-sur-Seine. It was created between 1852 and 1858 during the reign of the Emperor Napoleon III. It is the second-largest park in Paris, slightly smaller than the Bois de Vincennes on the eastern side of the city. It covers an area of 845 hectares (2090 acres), which is about two and a half times the area of Central Park in New York and slightly less (88%) than that of Richmond Park in London. Within the boundaries of the Bois de Boulogne are an English landscape garden with several lakes and a cascade; two smaller botanical and landscape gardens, the Château de Bagatelle and the Pré-Catelan; a zoo and amusement park in the Jardin d'Acclimatation; GoodPlanet Foundation's Domaine de Longchamp dedicated to ecology and humanism, The Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil, a complex of greenhouses holding a hundred thousand plants; two tracks for horse racing, the Hippodrome de Longchamp and the Auteuil Hippodrome; a tennis stadium where the French Open tennis tournament is held each year; and other attractions.

    A beautiful and huge woodland in the heart of Paris - Nature - many species of flowers, trees and other plants, lakes, ducks, geese, swans, resident dogs, garden benches, rowing boats, bars, snack bars and restaurants, people using their bicycles etc. Usually one finds parking spaces with ease in the streets, in the busy avenues is more difficult. Do not expect a friendly reception by the French, French are very boring, unfriendly, they work as if they were making a huge sacrifice and an overwhelming favor to you. Take with you potable water and snack, food and water in France cost the price of gold. Attention families: there are regions used by prostitution in vehicles parked along some stretches of avenues and access streets.

    Huge park a little outside city center. Good for cycling and running. For sightseeing it's a little off the main places so not fully worth it

    Beautiful green spot with good connections with the city. Avoid going there alone in the evening, we came across some strange characters.

    A very nice park to walk or run in, unfortunately criss-crossed by many roads often full of cars - people commute... IMHO they ought to do something about the latter.
