Why locals recommend it
My mum is very sporty. She’s part of a running club that gathers every day in the Bois de Vincennes. When I’m in Paris, I join her for a nice 6km run in nature while chatting. It’s a great way to catch up with her while working out! Out on the city’s outskirts, this is Paris’s largest public park. You can easily run much further than you expected in this great environment.
Tips from locals
You can enjoy a walk or go by cycling. The biggest park in Paris with few lakes and its famous racecourse.
Largest park in Paris, great for walks in fine weather, maybe not after dark (easy to get lost), there are lakes in different parts of the park. It’s huge.
