Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg), Paris, France
15 rue de Vaugirard, Paris, France 75291| Map |
The Luxembourg Garden, the largest park in Paris, is an oasis of natural beauty located in the 6th arrondissement, near the Sorbonne University and the Latin Quarter. This 17th-century garden wasn’t opened to the public until the 19th century. Yet, it still contains its graceful fountains and sculptures of old. Obviously, the Luxembourg Garden is a popular place for Parisians to relax, but there are also many lively activities for natives and visitors alike. Children can watch puppet shows, ride ponies and borrow remote controlled boats which they can launch in the large pool in the middle of the park. The entire park is great for strolling, picnicking or just sitting and people-watching, a favorite pastime of Parisians.
