Fun to picnic or have drinks. Locals also socialize there. Great way to experience Paris while relaxing.

This is one of the most beautiful places in Paris. The architecture was conceived as a whole, and is among the best anywhere. Go there to sit quietly and enjoy a unique environment.

Nice and historical place, a perfect square! A nice getaway from the busy shopping street a few blocks away. Restaurants around.

This is a great park in the Marais. Always active with people enjoying their time, and families with children playing, it's a close stop if you're in the area. And, Victor Hugo's house on the SE corner. It's worth a stop.

From the Renaissance era, this square was a revolution. It opened up a very crowded part of town and created a harmonious collection of townhouses that has been lovingly preserved. So beautiful. Some nice cafes along the sides.

The square itself is not particularly inspiring other than for its history, however there are some delightful restaurants and bars here.

We visited early evening when many families were out in the park relaxing. Pretty fountain in the corner of the park where you can sit and enjoy your coffee

Neat, tidy and peaceful park in the heart of Le Marais for relaxing and eating one's sandwiches. The water available in the park is fresh and potable. The surrounding arcade arches give it a special feeling. The Victor Hugo museum is quite interesting but rather...More

spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

It looks like originally there was one fountain there -- instead of four. And as far as I can tell ... it didn't have a name.

When in France you generally have the marriage ceremony at the local Mairie (town hall) then go to a park for pictures. I am sure it can be done, if you find the right person or priest. But it will take a lot of... More
