The Parc Floral is the biggest park in Paris after the Bois de Boulogne, set within walking distance from the Château. In addition to his superb greenery, this is a giant park featuring playgrounds for children, miniature golf, four-wheeled bicycle rides, exhibitions-sales, shows, butterfly greenhouse and many more gems.

Head to Paris Parc Floral to discover a genuine wonderland in the heart of the Bois de Vincennes. Very-well known by locals, this great place is the perfect outing idea to discover with your families, friends, and even as a couple.

The Paris Parc Floral is part of an ensemble called "Jardin Botanique de la Ville de Paris" or Paris City's Botanic Garden including the Arboretum de l'école de Breuil, the Parc de Bagatelle, and the Serres d'Auteuil. Former military field, it was created in 1969 by architect-landscapist Collin who undoubtedly drew inspiration from Japanese gardens. Furthermore, magnificent Zen gardens are to be discovered.

You need to discover the Jardin des Quatre-Saisons and the Vallée des Fleurs. Each season, enjoy discoveries and flowers. Irises and rhododendrons in May, tulips in April, roses in June, without forgetting dahlias from July to October, there is always something to enjoy.

All along your walk, surrounded by beautiful plants and colorful flowers, a strange sound can be heard before our eyes lay down on magnificent peacocks that proudly took over the place. Here, the Parisian hustle and bustle seems so far away. We feel like young and naïve again, lulled by the joy of merry days.

In addition to being a lovely place for a walk, the Parc Floral is also a wonderful playground. Children and adults will find something to do. Open-air games, slides, small ziplines, minigolfs, acrobatic courses, and even four-wheeled bicycle rides – Parc Floral’s famous Rosalie – here is a place it feels good being in.
