The Monceau Park- The chicest dog friendly park in Paris
Last weekend, we went for a walk in the Monceau Park, at the border between the 8th and the 17th district of Paris. Both the park and the area are amazingly beautiful, it is definitely the chicest dogfriendly park of Paris! Dogs are allowed in the whole garden, theoretically on a leash, but we met there a lot of pups without one during this morning walk.
The park was created at the end of the XVIIIth century on behalf of Duc de Chartre, you’ll find their many statues, some wonderful colonnades or even an old arch from the former Paris city hall. The park has been modified a lot of time during his existence, but in his actual form it is a bit more than 8 hectares, that is quite enough to let your furry friends run freely!
Jaeger : 4/5
Us : 4,5/5
Jaeger loved :
- The big lawns to run
- All the dogs we met during our walk (really, it’s crazy how many dogs there was!)
- The numerous water points in the park
- The aisles, made of sand for a lot of them, way more comfy for her small paws
- The unwritten authorization to walk there without a leash
We loved :
- The beauty of the park and of the buildings around
- The easy access with many subway stations close to the park
- The ideal area to go for a drink or a bite after your walk, since the famous « rue des dames » is only a few meters away
- The cleanliness of the park
Jaeger was less amazed by :
- The official rules that doesn’t allow to run without a leash
- The lack of small hills to tire yourself out!
We were less amazed by :
- Not so many things to be honest, but in order to be really picky we will say that the park could have been a bit bigger.
To conclude, we clearly encourage you to go discover this beautiful park and to have there a poetic walk with your dog, who should find many friends to play with him there.
