Parc Monceau is not very large as Paris parks go, but it is one of the most charming of parks. It was one of the first landscaped parks to be created in Paris. It was designed for the Duc de Chartres in about the 1760's....More

This smaller park in the 8th has a wonderful pond with columns and amazing sculptures. Also a playground for young kids as well as other attractions. It was close too where we lived for a time and was very pleasant to visit.

Hi, I was in Park Monceau on Friday and there were lots of dogs, most on leads and I think that some dogs were not on leads when we were there. It was very early in the morning.
