    Lovely garden with an amazing tropical green house (you have to pay to go in but the main garden is free.) It is surrounded by other museums, the gem and mineral museum was a personal favorite.

    Even cloudy it's a nice park. Really similar to Ciutadella park at Barcelona. A lot of museums around and at one of the corners you got la mosquee de Paris.

    A wonderful place that has at least 3 museums, 1 zoo, and several botanic gardens. Between the Grand Mosque of Paris and the river Seine, and a stone's throw to Cité de la Mode et du Design.

    A really good hangout specially if you're into plants. Kids will love the Menagerie, a small zoo annexed to the park with a couple of cool animals like a red panda and a kangaroo. Go on sunny days!

    Next to Austerlitz station departures to the Riviera and Burgundy, you'll see the 'Evolution Gallery' with fantastic dinosaurs as well as a zoo for kids and great exotic plants & flowers...

    I was surprised to discover this is an animal park attached to the university. The enclosures are old and a little sad but the grounds are stunning. Find the lookout.

    It's not a great place for visiting, all the museums are paid separately and they don't have so many attractive things to be seen. But, if you love nature, plants, flowers and fields go ahead!

    A really nice and beautiful garden. It's really cool to stay under the trees and enjoy yourselfs. Spend some time in the two museums in the garden.

    This cedar is 281+ years old, it was was planted in Jardin des Plantes in 1734. This is mind-blowing, check it out!

    Fantastic spot for a quiet day. Smalls can run along paths; picnic; visit the zoo (one of the oldest around); children's activity center. #tinymights

    My favourite park in Paris. A small zoo, big XIX century Greenhouses and the Museum d'histoire naturelle give to this park a really special feel.

    Been here 5+ times
    Walk in the park, pass by the building where Pierre and Marie Curie worked, visit the Menagerie (one of the oldest zoo in the world), enter the National Museum of Natural History and its greenhouses

    If you want to see pretty things, cross it from Austerlitz to Jussieu. My favorite season is when the mimosas are flowering, they are huge.

    Really nice place but avoid during summer (gets pretty dusty because the ground is actually plain dirt)

    The must-visit for a family! Botanical gardens, zoo, greenhouse, can never say this place is boring, or there is nothing to do here.
