Parc de Bagatelle

Located in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne wood, the Parc de Bagatelle stands apart from the other green spaces in the city of Paris.
Much appreciated by Parisians and those who live near Boulogne, the Parc de Bagatelle is indeed a place for strolling and relaxing. Apart from its gigantic trees and varied flora, the little bridges and grottos, the water mirrors and artificial waterfalls give this spot some enviable charm. One of the curiosities there is a 19th-century Chinese pagoda which definitely contributes to the park’s style. A magnificent rose garden with 10,000 rose bushes from 1,200 different species is also part of the landscape. The park regularly holds exhibitions and other events such as classical music concerts.
