Parc Montsouris
Oliver Knight / Time Out

The most colourful of the capital's many parks, Montsouris was laid out for Baron Haussmann by Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand. It includes a series of sweeping, gently sloping lawns, an artificial lake and cascades. On the opening day in 1878 the lake inexplicably emptied, and the engineer responsible committed suicide.

Wonderful music and cultural events on the summer weekends and plenty of picnicking space. One of the few parks in Paris where you can bring your dog (must stay on leash) so it's a top choice on my list. Accessible via RER-B, T3, B88,B21,B67.
