It's a lovely park in the middle of the city. It has fountains and trees. A lot of people come by. You can just promenade or even jog in it.

Flowerless, the flower beds are planted for the spring , trees are beautiful and the chairs around the pond are "orphans"...no one sits here now as winter is biting... It should be so beautiful in spring.

Luxembourg Gardens is absolutely beautiful--the pool, the gardens, watching other visitors. It is a great pleasure to sit and take in the views. I would be content to visit here every day.

Magnificent gardens at the back of the French Senate building; previous residence of Catherine de Medicci. Wonderful statues and a central pond for kids to sail boats. A lot of joggers at the external ring but plenty to do nonetheless: Puppet theatre and café.
