This huge park is a massive green space that works for health and relaxation. My favorite activity is rowing on one of the lakes, but the zoo is a runner-up And then there are the pavilions left over from the international expo in the 1930s.

One of the green lungs of Paris, a huge park on the East side, with a zoo, the remnants of an international expo, lots of bike and hiking paths, a castle, and best of all, lakes where you can rent boats for rowing.
