Bois de Boulogne (Boulogne Forest)
The Bois de Boulogne stretches over 863 hectares (2132 acres). It was named after the sanctuary Notre-Dame de Boulogne le Petit under the reign of Philippe IV, known as Philippe le Bel. It was then partly converted to a royal hunting ground before being redesigned to include wide alleyways, inviting elegant Parisians to take a stroll. Lovers can peddle across lakes with rented boats, sports enthusiasts can race with rented bikes, nature lovers can fish for fun and kids can play on the expansive playgrounds; there is something for everyone here. Complete with a swimming pool, cafes and restaurants, it is a great place to spend an entire day having fun amidst nature!
We rented bicycles and rode around and through the entire park. Its a lovely place that is easy to access and gave travellers from Canada a welcome respite from the hubbub and crowds of Paris. Not in the travel guides..even better!
