The 5 best parks for a picnic in Paris

1) Parc Montsouris

This large park to the south of Paris is perfect for a great family day out. Your children won’t know where to start first – there are the pony rides, the play areas, the large lawns, the merry-go-rounds and the tunnels they can explore. The ice-cream van sells delicious homemade organic sorbets. On weekends it can be busy but you can always find a spot on the lawn for your picnic blanket.
