Parc Floral de Paris information
This magnificent botanical park is one of the highlights of the Bois de Vincennes. Natural landscaping and a magnificent collection of plants keep garden lovers happy, while Paris’ largest play area (giant climbing webs and slides, jungle gyms, sandboxes) thrills families with young children. For bigger kids, there are plenty of paid-for activities too, including mini-golf, tree-climbing and table tennis. Free open-air concerts are staged throughout summer, making it a first-rate picnic destination.
