Luxembourg Gardens

Rue de Vaugirard, Boulevard St. Michel, Rue Auguste-Comte and Rue Guynemer, Paris

4.5

The Luxembourg Gardens is a landscaped park. It is a recreational and relaxation area. The place is overgrown with trees, boasting walkways, lush greenery and outstanding works of art everywhere.

The park comprises French and English style gardens and has many works of art (fountains, sculptures, grottoes...) and floral and herbal arrangements. The place is tranquil, offering respite of the city and its traffic in a verdant environment.

The Luxembourg Gardens are ideal both for the children and the adults. Children can entertain themselves in a number of ways, including riding the city’s oldest carousel, sailing small boats or attending a puppet show. The adults can relax in a beautiful setting and observe works of art.

The place is especially beautiful in summer, with the verdant greenery, and in autumn, when warm colors are prevalent.

The Luxembourg Gardens are near the center of Paris. They are open from early hours until evening. You can find the gardens next to the Pantheon, in the vicinity of the Latin Quarter.

    Wonderful, beautiful, huge tiered park, nicely sectioned and divided out in a classical way, with a big fountain/pond in the centre. Surrounded on the edge of the oval area walkways and the square tree line are statues of famous people, and the entrance is guarded by 2 lions, with the Palace in the background. This area is free and available for the public, with green manicured lawns, children's playground and tennis courts. Great space to sit and absorb the beauty of the area, and relax and stay in the cool of the shade that the trees offer, fantastic park!!!

    A large beautiful park in the middle of the city. It is great for a stroll and if you are visiting with kids the playground here is one of the best public play spaces I have found (though there is a small cost to enter). The central pool of water is also a fun spot to sit and watch the boats sail.

    An awesome park! This is free and open to the public, with plenty of shade, benches, and picnic tables. This is a perfect spot for walking, running, sight-seeing, or just people watching. Easy access from the Metro and totally worth it for an afternoon out. Bring a book, or a blanket, or just yourself and enjoy this Queen's garden! The statues of queens (and the patron saint of Paris, St. Genevieve) are cool to see, too!

    A great place to get some quiet time. People tend to gather around the shallow pools where there are plenty of chairs. You'll often see kids playing with toy boats on the water. There are wooded areas that offer shade, permanent table tennis tables in one area, gazebos that sometimes feature jazz bands. One thing to note is that the park closes fairly early in the evenings. Park officials and their whistles make it pretty clear when it's time to leave.

    Little Piece of Heaven! There are many beautiful green spaces/gardens in Paris, but Luxembourg Gardens was my favorite. The vibration of the place is amazing, specially if it is a sunny day.. There are amazing statues scattered around and gigantic fountains. :)) There was a gorgeous little shaded duck pond and stunning manicured hedges everywhere. A lovely place to visit!

    This place has a nice, relaxed, family vibe to it that I can appreciate. A recommendation I would give is for more allotted areas devoted to lying on the grass! We only came across one - every other patch informed people to please keep off. More grass and less sand would make this a 5 star park.

    A beautiful spot to relax in Paris, an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Chairs laid out to relax on, chess boards where locals play. Nice location too, a short walk from great restaurants and bars.

    We took our family here including two grandchildren. It's a beautiful garden with a lake. Around the lake are plenty of chairs which can be moved into groups together if you wish. There are toy boats for hire which the children loved. The price was very reasonable, 4 euros for half an hour and so much fun. There are fast food huts and it's an easy walk through. The only down side for me was the keep off the grass mentality which was a shame. Great morning spent there though.

    Beautiful gardens, wonderful place for a picnic. The playground area was very nice. Love that the floor is not sand. It is a soft tiled surface. The older kids play area looked really nice although my son is 2 and was not able to use it. I was tempted to try some myself :)

    These gardens are so cool. I thought the central fountain was really neat. There is a small rental place next to the fountain where you can rent a miniature toy sailboat to put in the fountain. The park has a gentle breeze and the sail boats will glide back and forth on the water's surface. A great activity to keep kids entertained! There are plenty of places to sit down and relax in the sun or the shade. The small cafe was great for an afternoon coffee and a crepe. I wish I had brought a book to read, as I would have stayed there the rest of the afternoon.
