The "Jardin des Tuileries" is one of the most emblematic places in Paris. When you walk through, it's a continuous color contrast, depending on the season you visit in. It's the most central garden in Paris that begins at the Louvre Museum and ends at Place de la Concorde. It's striking, and you can also visit the surrounding beautiful structures that line the main strip. A walk in this park is essential during a visit to Paris, and you must stop on a tour o the main sites of the city.
This is a green oasis in the heart of the Left bank and the preferred park among Parisians.
The gardens are spread out around Luxembourg Palace and highlights are the octagonal lake, the terraces, avenues, statues, puppet-theaters, tennis courts, gazebos, and open-air cafes.
Garden at its best, care, colorful . Far from the crowd, Louis XIV and subsequent lovers didn´t have bad taste, and escaped from the court to the palace, to enjoy the beautiful sculptures and big open spaces of the garden, it is worth the visit, though I recommend renting a golf cart so you can see every single corner of this place.
The Champ de Mars are the huge gardens at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, Paris. Its name comes from the Roman Mars field and the Champ de Mars was just a field and an esplanade planted with vegetables. The construction of the Military Academy wasdesigned by architect Jacques-Ange Gabriel determine in 1765 for use as a military training ground and is the perfect place to rest/eat at the foot of the tower (if the police allow). It's funny because the gendarmes patrol every 30mins-1 hour to make people leave the field and 5 minutes later it is full of people.
This park is only open when it does not rain. It is a wonder with waterfalls and a lake. It is totally green and you can enjoy your pet, your partner, your children, go to school there, spending all day sightseeing and completely disconnected there is fabulous and very beautiful to see, plus it still has the same charm that Paris as fences follow the same historic architecture, has many ways, is a great opportunity to see the city and combine with this spectacle of nature that there is.
Old railway track which since 1859 connected the Place de la Bastille to Varenne Saint-Mur. It was built as a promenade and gardens in 1988. Full of viaducts and bridges and a garden built at the height of the surrounding buildings, so you can see the road underneath, while from the street you cannot appreciate what is in the heights. A walk in a little-known corner of Paris.
Founded in 1626, the Paris Botanical Garden is currently a serious institution and leisure option. It's not too large, and plants are carefully tended to.

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places and most charming of all Paris are the Luxembourg Gardens. Within this garden city, one of the most popular of central Paris, is the Fountain of Mary of Medicis. Maria de Medici, regent of France was widowed five days after being crowned. To get away from the court, to find new residence, she ordered the building of the Luxembourg Palace. She chose this place to build her new settlement in the sprawling grounds surrounding it, the gardens, are just as original as this beautiful fountain. Do walk through the gardens, enjoy their beauty, relax and contemplate whilst sitting on one the banks near this fountain.
Bercy Park is located near the river Seine and the banks of Bercy in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. It is beside the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy, which holds many concerts and sporting events throughout the year. The district of Bercy Village, is a new neighborhood perfect for drinks with friends. This garden is divided into three parts, built between 1993 and 1997, after the industrial area was destroyed and rebuilt as a residential area. First the "great meadow", a large lawn with trees, where you can have a sandwich or take a nap in the shade of the trees. A little closer to the Cour Saint Emilion, are the beds, planted areas, 9 squares of cultures, with different themes, orchard, oranges, the vines, the gardener's house ... The third and last part is the "romantic garden ", with a footbridge to the Bercy Village, with shrubbery in one part, mixed with water installations, a small pond, fish and water lilies ... Entrance to the park is free, but it is closed at night. Open until 9 or 10 at night in summer, gates shut at 5 in winter.
An original park, though it lacks greenery ... But the canal running through means we do not complain! The park includes children's entertainment areas, modern sculptures (such as the "buried bike" visible in the photos).
