Stroll in the Floral Park - Paris - Vincennes

A walk in one of the most beautiful parks in Paris: the Parc Floral. It is located in the Bois de Vincennes.

The Parc Floral is not the most famous of the Parisian parks because it is not located in the center of Paris but in the Bois de Vincennes (metro Château de Vincennes line 1 then cross the courtyard of the castle). It's a pity because it is very beautiful and well organized. The entrance to the park is free during the off-season (September-May) but you have to pay during the summer season (2,5 euros). As the name of the park indicates, the park is dedicated to flowers and plants. The best time to visit is definitely during the flowering of the plants in early summer. There is even a calendar of the flowerings of the Floral Park! Don't hesitate to visit the Parc Floral, you won't be disappointed.
