Why you will love it?

Parc Monceau is located in the north western part of Paris, in the rich and posh area next to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées Avenue. It attracts a very bourgeois crowd, but it is still very Parisian, with its joggers, its children’s playground and its summer picnickers. With many remnants of its “illusion land” era, the charms and curiosities of Parc Monceau is something you should not miss.

Our Insiders' Article

Parc Monceau


Parc Monceau lies a few hundred meters away from the Arc de Triomphe, in the heart of the chic neighborhoods of Paris. Once designed as more of an amusement park in the 18th century, it is now a lively park where Parisians like to gather. The kids love it for its playground, ponies and merry-go-round. Parc Monceau is also a favorite for joggers, and summer picnickers.

Making the Most of It

Apart from winter, when there is not that much going on, there is always something to see and do in Parc Monceau. In summer, a lot of chic Parisians come here for a fancy picnic. The blossoming trees of spring mark the end of the dull and gloomy winder days while the autumn colors are simply wonderful. The park can be a bit noisy during weekdays, as a lot of neighboring schools chose to use the park as a playground or sports field.


Parc Monceau was once an “illusion land.” From the past amusement park constructions, the pyramid, the stream, the lily pond (Naumachie) and the Corinthian colonnade still exist today. Remnants of the Greek and roman temples are also visible. New curiosities, such as the doorway of Paris’ former city hall, burned in 1871, or a Venetian bridge over the stream have been added during the late 1800’s.


Marcel Proust, author of “Remembrance of Things Past”, used to spend a lot of time walking through the alleys of Parc Monceau. This must also have been the case for other great artists such as composers Chopin, Gounod and Thomas, or writers like Musset and Maupassant, all of whom have their statues in the park.

The beautiful rotunda at the main entrance of Parc Monceau was built as a tollhouse in 1784.


In 1778, the Duke of Chartres decided to build an “illusion land” where a miniature pyramid, a Corinthian colonnade, a Dutch windmill, a Chinese bridge, a minaret were some of the curiosities built to amaze visitors.

The Duke was guillotined in 1793 and the park was then nationalized. Half of it was sold to real estate developers, and the other half – the existing park – was bought by the city of Paris in 1860.

Final adjustments, such as the famous fences surrounding the park, were made to the newly opened public park in 1861. 


A stroll down the alleys of Parc Monceau is well worth it. The “illusion land” it once was, gathering all times and all places in one garden, still offers a unique chic ambiance today. So go buy your ham and butter baguette sandwich (also called a “parisien”) and enjoy your lunch while sitting on a bench in Parc Monceau. There’s no better way to live the Parisian experience.
