"Parc Monceau" Parc Monceau Tip by ExGuyParis
Parc Monceau, Paris: 10 reviews and 27 photos
Paris has a remarkable series of parks. This one, Parc Monceau, has a number of entrances: 78, bd de Courcelles, avenue Velasquez, avenue Van Dycq, and avenue Ruysdaël , in the 8th. This park is not far from the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe.
Like many French parks, there are a series of "folies" or artificial ruins, designed to charm the eye and the soul.
This park is used frequently by runners; you will see men and women circling the perimeter in sports shorts, tee shirts, and running shoes. (The only time you will EVER see the French wearing running shoes is when they are running! If you see someone walking the streets in running shoes, you can bet safely that they are not French).
