Parc Floral

In one corner of the “Bois de Vincennes” (see preceding post) is the Paris “Parc Floral”. It dates from 1969 and is used for flower shows, exhibitions… There is an open theatre, an “exotarium” (exotic fishes and reptiles), a lake…

It’s particularly a place for just relaxing, picnicking, walking around…
… and the place for some great playgrounds.
Sorry! Since some time I have been too busy to make the tour of blogs, to comment... Furthermore, I will be absent the coming week, but have pre-programmed a few posts, including this one.

Hi Peter !
Been a while getting back here, work has been too crazy...

Love the Bois de Vincennes, have a brother in law who lives very close to there. It's good to see alot of trees are back, I went in there in the days just after Christmas 2000 when the big storm blew down trees all over the region, Vincennes looked like a war zone, many many trees had snapped off or become uprooted...

Greetings from all of us...

It looks like spring is in all of it's glory in Paris.

Peter

Creating and or preserving green spaces in our cities are important -- they provide so much joy in the natural world. Beautiful photos once again.

I have a question for you--
have you ever done anything on the Palais Garnier, also known as the Opéra de Paris or Opéra Garnier and photos of the underground with the lakes and all? I have seen some photos recently and I know not where but would like to look at them again?

Bonjour Peter!
ça va?

I like that kind of places...to relax, be outside...
Many bloggers are busy or even stopped blogging and some blog only weekends...
Interaction takes time...

Tu es dans la visite des parcs et des bois en ce moment, c'est bien malheureux que tu n'ais pas visité mon petit parc avec le petit bois derrière chez moi

Catherine said...

what lovely spring flowers right now - looks a great place to stroll - except maybe the tulips a rea a trifle too regimented for my taste!!

Nathalie said...

Sympa de nous faire faire le tour des jardins de Paris ! Les jeux d'enfants sont bourrés à craquer, ça doit être les vacances...

Anne in Oxfordshire said...

Another amazing post, keep drawing me back here :-) They do have lovely parcs in Paris, and some hidden.

My list keeps getting longer and longer :-)

Looks like a great spot to spend the day. Thanks for introducing this park. It's excellent.

Adam said...

The best park in Paris, especially for kids! However, for the last two summers they've had problems with some kind of caterpiller that lives in the trees and tends to fall on people, causing nasty allergic reactions! For that reason, large parts of the park tend to get roped off. That's nature though I suppose!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Wow! What a gorgeous place! I would love to be there walking and enjoying the beautiful Park Floral!
Have a nice day!

Un photographe s'est glissé parmi les fleurs....Sauras tu le retrouver ?
