The Parc de Bercy – A perfect spot to let your dog unwind himself in the center

Hi everyone,

This week we want you to discover the Parc de Bercy. Located in the 12th district, along the Seine docs, near Bercy Arena of course and in front of the gigantic Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand (BNF), a big part of the park is allowed to dogs.

Jaeger: 4/5

Nous: 3,5/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The big lawn and sidewalks where she could run
  • The many dogs that meets in the park (we eared about planned meetings on Sunday morning)
  • The big stairs perfect to unwind yourself
  • The location, along the Seine docs to make a double walk
  • Being allowed to run without her leash

We loved :

  • The easy access, the park is easy to reach with the subway and quite in the center
  • The really nice views from the sidewalks, with on one side the BNF and on the other a nice view of the park from above
  • To be sure to let Jaeger unwind herself thanks to the big lawn and the other dogs
  • To be close to Bercy Village, perfect to finish your walk with a nice restaurant or bar!

Jaeger was less amazed by :

  • Not being able to go everywhere since a part of the park is not allowed to dogs
  • The cleanliness sometimes a bit approximative

We were less amazed by:

  • Quite the same things!

To conclude, this par is perfect to let your dog meet some friends and run freely without having to go to the Bois de Vincennes or the Bois de Boulogne that are much more far away. In addition, this park give you the opportunity to make a double walk since it is close to the Seine docs and the « Coulée Verte ».

As usual the maps and google map link are below the pics.

La Coulée Verte: Another view on Paris with your dog

Hi Everyone,

 

This week we would like you to discover a nice walk on “La Coulée Verte René Dumont”, partially dog friendly. This old disused railroad has become a long green promenade of more than 4 km since 1993. The way connects Bastille and the Bois de Vincennes while going through buildings in the 11th and 12th district of Paris.

Jaeger: 4/5

Us: 4,5/5

As you can see on the pics bellow, the promenade look a lot like the New York Highline, since almost half of it overhang the streets of Paris of 7 meters. This way, you can have a mixed vision of nature, city views and street art. That is really an uncommon walk, that is for now not that well known by the tourist and the Parisian themselves. Here is a schematic map:

plan 3D

Officially, dogs are not welcome on the first 2 kilometers, but only after the Reuilly Garden. But we made this walk at least 20 times with Jaeger before knowing it, and we never had any problem (it still might have been different with a bigger dog). But anyway, after those 2 first kilometers, dogs are totally welcome on the second half of the way, that allows you to have an original trip to go to the Bois de Vincennes.

 

Jaeger loved:

  • The calm atmosphere, one of the privileges when you are above the street
  • The beautiful nature along the way, more or less wild depending on the parts
  • The fact that after this walk you arrive at the Bois de Vincennes and you can start a new one right away
  • All the dogs that you meet

We loved:

  • The calm atmosphere also
  • The beautiful and original perspectives over Paris
  • The feeling to be a bit in a confidential area reserved to the people who knows it
  • The slalom in the middle of the buildings, 7m above the ground
  • The opportunity to go to the Bois de Vincennes without the subway
  • The well-groomed green spaces
  • On the beginning of the second part, a few bars with terraces to have a small break

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The fact that she cannot go everywhere
  • Not being able to go in the Jardin de Reuilly bellow the walk

We were less amazed by:

  • The many joggers on the way

 

To conclude, this is definitely a nice and original walk for you and your dog in order to discover Paris. As usual, the map and the link to google map are below the pics.

The Luxembourg Garden – A haven of greenery and history in the heart of Paris

Hi everyone,

This weekend, with Jaeger, we went to the Jardin du Luxembourg. This park is in the 6th district, in the heart of Paris, between Odéon Theater and Panthéon. The Palace in the park is the Palais du Luxembourg, the french Senat. It was build in 1633 under the order of Catherine de Médicis. Of course a part of it is dog friendly!

Jaeger: 2,5/5

Us: 5/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The fresh & clean pathes bellow the big trees
  • The few friends that we met during the walk
  • The calm even if you are in the center of Paris
  • The small birds to hunt

We loved:

  • The amazingly beautiful park
  • The beautiful Palais du Luxembourg
  • The environment, perfect for a nice picnic on a bench bellow the trees
  • The possibility to go there before or after a walk in one of the best district of Paris

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The too small dogfriendly area
  • Having to be on a leash
  • The lawn were dogs are not allowed

We were less amazed by:

  • The guardian a bit tense

To conclued it is a perfect walk to discover one of the most beautiful place of Paris with your dog, but it is clearly not ideal if you want to let your tibetan mastiff run everywhere.

As usual the map and the google map link are bellow the pics.

Have a nice walk!

Bassin de la Villette – A holidays by the sea feeling in Paris

Hi everyone,

Today we went for a walk with Jaeger around the Bassin de la Villette. This waterway in the 19th district, right after the Saint Martin Canal, is the biggest artificial waterbody of Paris. It was created in 1808, and today it is a perfect place to walk your dog before having a nice dinner with a wonderful relaxing view.

Jaeger: 3/5

Us: 4,5/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The large and beautiful docks (and the many trees)
  • The bridges going over the waterbody and giving you nice and long perspectives
  • The many friends that you meet along the road
  • The possibility to mix that walk with an other one in le parc de la Villette, a dog friendly park of Paris (a post will be coming soon)

We loved:

  • The young and relaxed atmosphere
  • The possibility to make a bocce game almost everywhere
  • The many many many nice terrace to have a drink or a meal with a view on the basin
  • That holidays by the sea felling while watching the boats
  • The opportunyty to rent a small electric boat to have a nice picnic with your dog on the water (infos ici)

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The lack of grass
  • The lack of specific dog areas
  • The many people (but it was a summer friday night, normally the basin is more calm)

We were less amazed by:

  • The lack of green areas too
  • The doubtfull cleanliness of the water in the basin

Please do share your feelings about this walk. As usual, the map & google map link are under the pics.

Have a nice walk!

The Bois de Vincennes – the biggest nature area in Paris

Hi everyone,

On this really hot weekend we went for a walk in the Bois de Vincennes. It is one of the two big wood of Paris along with Bois de Boulogne (Vincennes is actually the bigger of Paris). It was the French kings hunting area for centuries before Louis XIV mooved to Versailles. It begins in the XII district and it is near the Vincennes castle.

For the dogs: 4,5/5

For the masters: 4/5

Jaeger loved:

  • The small streams for a fresh bath
  • The many, many (many) friends that you meet all along the road
  • The gigantic lawns, that are perfect to run with those new friends. It is kind of the official dog meeting areas!
  • The freshness on the small path in the shadow of the trees
  • The wild under woods
  • The fact that there is almost no streets and cars at all in the woods

We loved:

  • The more rustic look of the woods, way more natural and “exotic” than Boulogne
  • The small paths along the streams for a romantic walk
  • The opportunity to walk kilometers before crossing any road with car

Jaeger was less amazed by:

  • The cleanliness of the water, that really depend on the spots and the season
  • The few water fountain (bring water for your dog with you)

We were less amazed by:

  • The lack of café, no way to have a nice fresh cola in the sun if you don’t bring your own!

To conclude, Boulogne is an amazing playing field for your dog and for you. It is really one of the parks where you meet the most dogs in Paris, perfect if yours need to socialize. Also, even if the lawns aren’t closed, since the roads are far away, it is a good spot to train your dog to come back. It was definitely a nice walk, and we hope you’ll get the chance to try it too!

The Seine Docks around l’Ile de la Citée and l’Ile Saint Louis – A slalom between the magnificient monuments of Paris

Hi everyone,

  • The small bars on the pedestrian docks that brings color and freshness when you need it
  • The wonderfull Place Dauphine, a small hidden jewel on l’île de la citée, perfect for a lawn bowling
  • The small rue des barres (picture bellow), a small pedestrian street hidden behind the cityhall, one of the most beautifull of Paris in my opinion

Jaeger was les amazed by:

  • The lack of grass
  • The interdiction to go in the Jean XXIII garden near Notre Dame

We were less amazed by:

  • The doubtfull cleanliness on some parts of the docks
