Lovely gardens, well maintained with lots of ornamental features. Very tranquil. We wouldn't travel miles to visit but definitely worth a visit if in the vicinity.

Hi, I was in Park Monceau on Friday and there were lots of dogs, most on leads and I think that some dogs were not on leads when we were there. It was very early in the morning.
