Parc Monceau

If you prefer quiet elegance for strolling among the Parisian trees, choose Parc Monceau. Hipsters choose the parc des Buttes Chaumont, and parents who don’t mind their children getting their Bonpoint and Jacadi highbrow white frocks scratched and muddy, choose Parc Monceau. Don’t forget to visit the just-as-posh Musée Cernuschi, right outside the park. For something more bohemian, a quick hop north-east from Parc Monceau is the cute Batignolles enclave, which is part of the 17th arrondissement.
