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.

The park dates from 1778, and currently measures 9 hectares ( 22 acres ). its a nice place to visit if you want to get away from the traffic and the noise. Popular with parents with children and joggers.
