Parc de Monceau - les enfants



Parc de Monceau offers something for everyone...

a carrousel (Jules Verne), honey bees, benches, a circular path for walking or running, sculptures, lawns for lounging (yes!), a pond with ducks, many shade trees, and a large play area for chidren.

I make a visit here almost every trip to Paris

I am so impressed by how families use parks in Paris. Beautiful children.

Truly a beautiful setting with magnificent gates. But kids just care about the sandbox and play equipment. Looks like this pair is playing well together.

On my last visit to Paris, my husband and I arranged to meet Nicola and her youngest child here in the park. How delightful to see how kids play together, ride scooters, and enjoy the park.

The addition of the carousel was made last fall and the style is a wonderful style, fitting in with the character of the park.

Enjoy your weekend, mes amis.

Bises,
Genie
