The Luxembourg Garden also known as the Jardin du Luxembourg is by far my favorite Garden in all of Paris and worth visiting. The Luxembourg Garden is known for being home to the French house of the Senate, its beautiful fountains, giant pond, flowerbeds and 106 statues! If you are looking for a massive garden that you can enjoy the beautiful outdoors, the Parisian way of life and culture all in one then the Luxembourg Garden is perfect for you! 

My first apartment in Paris was right next to this garden and Aaron and I would go almost every day. We loved to take advantage of the free tennis courts. During the warm months if you want a seat around the water then I highly recommend you get there early because once people sit down in those iconic green Parisians seats they are likely going to be there the entire day. If you are in Paris during the summer, the park offers several free exhibits and concerts.

The Garden Tuleries is located between the Lourve Mesuem and the Place de la Concorde. It is easily one of the most famous gardens is all of Paris. What I love about the Tuleries is during the summer they have a carnival that is open all day and closes after the park closes. For me, I love packing a picnic and heading to the Tulieries to enjoy a day outside with friends. 

Jardin des Tuileries offers a variety of statues, fountains, and beautiful garden area. Even if you aren't able to spend all day here and enjoy a picnic, it's definitely worth walking through. I highly recommend the Jardin Des Tuileries if you are looking for a large open greenery space, with ample amounts of statues, fountains, an annual popup carnival, and are looking for a good lookout spot where you can view, the Lourve, the Eiffel Tower, and Palace de la Concorde.

Parc Des Buttes Chaumon is the 5th largest park in Paris sitting on over 25 acres of land. This is my favorite park to enjoy long walks and enjoy nature. If you are looking for a way to escape the big city without actually leaving the city then the Parc Des Buttes Chaumon is perfect for you. Don't forget to pack a good pair of walking shoes for this Parisian garden.

When visiting Parc Des Buttes Chaumon expect to find families enjoying the playgrounds, large lakes, and even a waterfall. If you have kids then I highly recommend that you bring them here to run around and enjoy the great outdoors.

The Jardin Du Petit Palais is a secret garden tucked away in the 8th arrondissements of Paris. Oftentimes you will see several business people here meeting for a coffee or even to have lunch. What I love about this garden is how it’s relatively unknown and you’re surrounded by beautiful architecture. Plus there is a café located inside the garden which is perfect for the grabbing a drink, something to eat or even using the bathroom. This is the perfect garden in Paris to visit if you are looking for a quiet place to sit and read. This is a relatively small garden, so there isn’t much walking available.

The Jardin du Palais royal is one of my favorite garden to visit to relax and enjoy the beautiful architecture. This garden was originally designed for personal use to the royal family and then later opened to the public to enjoy. This is one of the smaller gardens on the list today. It is worth walking around and enjoying the beautiful scenery and immersing yourself in history. If you visit the Jardin du Palais Royal during the springtime expect to see the cherry blossoms and magnolia trees in full bloom! During Paris fashion week, famous designers will often rent out this garden.
