The Versailles palace park – An amazing historical walk with your dog

Hi everyone !

This weekend we went with Jaeger in the Versailles Palace Park. This wonderful haven of nature is totally free and dogs are totally allowed on a leash. Of course, you won’t be able to go in the gardens part or in the palaces itself with your pup. You can access directly to the park through the Grille de la Reine or Grille des matelots depending on which train station you arrived at.

The Palace park is almost 820 hectares wide (almost as big as Le Bois de Vincennes or le Bois de Boulogne), so it will be a bit hard to see it all in one time. It’s located directly in front of the castle, right after the French gardens from Lenôtre. The park is made of large alley with amazing perspectives and also in the center the gigantic “Grand Canal”.

Jaeger : 4/5

Us : 4/5

Jaeger loved :

  • The nature and freedom feeling
  • The big spaces all greener than the other
  • The sheep nearby
  • The “Grand Canal” to look after some fishes
  • The peaceful atmosphere

We loved :

  • How beautiful the place is, Versailles is definitely one of the most beautiful palace in France and in the world
  • The incredible perspectives of the park
  • Having the feeling to visit history
  • The cleanliness of the park
  • The peaceful atmosphere also

Jaeger was less amazed by :

  • Having to be on a leash
  • The long way to go there in RER (even if on the way back it is perfect to take a nap)
  • The terrifying golf cars in the park

We were less amazed by :

  • The long way too
  • And not being able to go in the magnificent gardens with the dog (quite normal but still it would have made amazing pics!)

To conclude, we definitely recommend you to go there with your pup in order to discover or rediscover an amazing historical place while enjoying a nice walk in nature !

Champs de Mars – A dogfriendly walk in front of the Tour Eiffel

Hi everyone,

 

This weekend, we take you to the champs de Mars. As you may imagine it’s clearly not the most confidential garden in Paris, but dogs are allowed and it is a nice walk to look at the Eiffel tower in the eyes.

Jaeger : 2,5/5

Us : 3/5

Jaeger loved :

  • The pigeons, they are everywhere and clearly not afraid, perfect for some city hunting!
  • The big lawns and alley
  • The opportunity to meet some furry friends there
  • Being next to Two Tails, a nice brand-new pet shop in the area

We loved :

  • The view of course
  • The district, ideal to go for another walk on the Seine banks after or on l’ile aux Cygnes
  • The accessibility, with many metros in the area

Jaeger was less amazed by :

  • The many people
  • The lack of « wild nature »
  • Having to be on a leash

We were less amazed by :

  • Also, the many people
  • The cleanliness that was quite debatable

To conclude it is clearly a nice walk, ideal to visit Paris with your dog or make some pictures. But if you know already the area and if you want to get your dog to run, it’s clearly not the ideal walk!

 

The Montsouris park, a dogfriendly haven of peace in the south of Paris

Hi everyone,

During this sunny weekend, we take you to the Montsouris Park. This big park (almost 16 hectares) is located in the south ectremity of Paris in the 14th district. We enjoyed here the big lawns et the wonderfull november colours in the many trees. The whole park is dog friendly as long as the dogs are on a leash.

This Park was build on demand of the Baron Haussmann just like the Bois de Boulogne, the Bois de Vincennes or the Buttes Chaumont park. Even if it’s not really in the center of Paris, the park itself is quite easilly accessible since there is many metro and RER stops next to it.

Jaeger : 4,5/5

Us : 4,5/5

Jaeger loved :

  • The big spaces
  • The hilly lawns to tired herself out
  • The many tiny animals and birds especially near the lake
  • The poney we met during our walk !

We loved :

  • The space, for a park in Paris, this one is quite big
  • It is also beautifully made in a romantic style
  • There is many atmosphere reagrding where you are in the park
  • You can also find a small bar near the water plan and also « la Butte aux cailles » area is near in order to have a nice lunch or drink after your walk

Jaeger was less amazed by :

  • The lack of furry friends, there is quite many dogs in the park, but since it’s big, you dont meet them that often
  • Having to be on a leash

We were less amazed by :

  • The lack of trashcan in the park, not that convinient when you walk your dog
  • Also the place, a bit far away from the center of Paris

Anyway, we strongly recommand you to go there if you want to have a nice walk in a beautifull park with your dog !

The Monceau Park- The chicest dog friendly park in Paris

Hi everyone,

 

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.

 

The Trocadéro Gardens – The most photogenic walk of Paris

Hi everyone,

This weekend we went for a walk in the Trocadéro garden. We wanted to make some nice photos with the Eiffel tower of course, but we also wanted to let Jaeger wander and chase the leaf’s in the gardens around one of the most famous places of the word!

We were there early in order to catch the morning lights for the pics, so the gardens were still quite calm, we only met a few furry friends along the road. But of course, I wouldn’t recommend you go there a Saturday afternoon at 4 during the holidays! 😊

Jaeger : 2,5/5

Us : 3,5/5

Jaeger loved:

  • Seeing a bit of green, the lawns and the small artificial river
  • The few playful friends we met along the road
  • The calm atmosphere in the beginning of the day
  • The autumn leaf’s
  • The opportunity to go for a walk on the Seine banks or on the Champ-de-Mars

We loved:

  • The gardens that are really cute and well-trimmed
  • The amazing viw on the Eiffel Tower that follow you everywhere
  • The many perfects spots to take wonderful pics
  • The fact that dogs are allowed in those garden that are probably the more seen in the world

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The gardens are quite small
  • Being obliged to be on a leash
  • The numerous people here out of the empty hours

We were less amazed by :

  • The fact that the neighborhood is really only made for tourist (quite normal though)

To conclude it is a nice place to go to if you walk your dog in this area, or if you want to take some beautiful pictures, but clearly, it’s not worth going through Paris with your dog just to visit those gardens if you already went there!

 

Buttes Chaumont: Let your dog travel between nature and parisian life

When the sun is out, we advise you to go directly to the Buttes Chaumont parc. In the 19th district between Belleville and Bassin de la Villette, the Buttes Chaumont parc is really a small piece of heaven with amazing perspectives.

This Hill was upgraded as a garden during the Paris landscaping projects ordered by Napoleon III. Today on the 25 hectare, we can find landscape with rock, cliff, cave and one lake. On the park island, you can see a beautiful temple.

You can walk everywhere with your dog in this park.

Jaeger 4/5

Nous 5/5

Jaeger loved :

  • The large lawn and all the small pieces where you can find water or climb on rock.
  • The hills which enable to really spend energy.
  • All the crows you can hunt
  • Plenty of friends to lay with

 

We loved :

  • The beauty of the garden and all the accommodations because we feel like we are elsewhere from Paris.
  • Amazing perpectives between city and nature when you’re at the top of the hill.
  • All the restaurants & bars you can find in the park nature. Moreover, at 10 minutes by foot, you have also one of the most beautiful views of Paris overhead Belleville Park in Moncoeur bar.
  • Park maintenance

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • Je ne peux pas enlever ma laisse

We were less amazed by:

  • A bit far from Paris city center

We totally recommend you this park for you and your dog because of its beauty and perspectives on Paris thanks on different hills. It’s perfect for a picnic on Sunday noon. As usual the map is bellow the pics!
