Walk in the Floral Park - Paris - Vincennes

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

The Floral Park is not the best known of the parisian parks because it is not located in the centre of Paris but in the Bois de Vincennes (Château de Vincennes line 1 metro then cross the courtyard of the Castle). It's a shame because it's very beautiful and very well organized. The entrance to the park is free except when there are demonstrations in particular during the shows of Jazz festival in June. Find out if there is an organized event before. The Park is dedicated to flowers and plants. The best time to visit is no doubt during the flowering of the plants in early summer. There is even a calendar of the Floral Park! Do not hesitate to go to the Floral Park you will not be disappointed.
