The balloon ride was great! Maybe go in the morning to avoid wind closure
Jul. 2021 • Family
We took a balloon ride this morning. There was absolutely no line (Wednesday at 9:30osh). The balloon closes if there is wind. It seems like it is more likely to close in the afternoon, so going early is probably best. We loved the quiet ride, and great views. The park is beautiful as well.

Very nice park for children next to the Seine
Sep. 2019 • Family
Great place to do a picnic or to bring children to play.

You will be greeted by a huge atmospheric weather balloon (gigantic) in the middle of the park. This is surrounded by a 1.5 metre waterway (there abouts) where children bring their toy boats to play with.

You can see the top of the Eiffel tower from this park (it is very close to it). France TV building is almost next to this park too.

There is a children playground and a couple of ping pong tables (bring you own racquets and ball). There is a cafeteria next to the big balloon with the usual drink offerings (no alcohol) and quick snacks.

A real find
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We had read about this park and went to find it this morning. A 2.3km walk from our hotel. Was well worth the walk, park is beautifully maintained a d the tethered balloon trip for 12 euro gave amazing views ofParis from 150m in the sky. It is o ly a 10min trip but great fun. The water fountain in the park is amazing and we had fun in the water.

Citroen Certainly Suffices
Apr. 2019 • Friends
Visited here while in the neighbourhood. Wouldn't have made a special trip but was pleasantly surprised. Modern and large but well layed out and landscaped with working and ornamental gardens. The new version of a Paris urban park. Lots of activities for families and obviously well used by regulars. Air balloon rides with soaring views over Paris would be a treat. Water features for the kids. Somewhat bland architecture and surrounding towers but the place woks well in this environment and was a great revitalization of the old Citroen factories on the site. Still quite close to the Eiffel Tower for tourists who want to expand their visit into the new Paris where people actually live.

A peaceful park for everyone, love it <3

If you look for a place in Paris but far away from the city's stressful energy, please consider this park. Its unique layout will allow you a large variety of activities, depending on what you are looking for.

Families with children generally gather themselves around the vast central body of herb or near the fountains. It's perfect for a refreshment during warm summer days !

For people who would like to be in a more quiet place, the arcades will definitely satisfy your needs. Plus you can make some cool photos in the shadows of the trees. Actually, it is quite common to encounter some Instagramers willing to have a cool profil picture :)

For groups of friends or lovers, the artificial bamboo island is the right spot to... Do what groups of friends or lovers do...

There is also a wide variety of plants and trees, and even two big greenhouses dedicated to tropical plants.

My advice is to spend some time wandering in all the corners of this park. You can easily plan a day full of activities there !

A great park
Oct. 2018 • Solo
I was actually hoping to find a Citroen museum but this park was a nice surprise. Located right on the seine it is broken into many little areas with different vegetation. The large area in the center has a hot air balloon that is tethered by a cable so you can ride up for a great view of the city without drifting off.

There's a small café on one side of the park. This is also a good place to take children as there are quite a few little play area is nestled among the trees and bushes.

Overall I highly recommend it if you enjoy parks.

Water Features

On the edge of the city, this is a very modern park built on the site of a former auto factory. The best part is a series of water features. Lots of big open spaces.

"Parc André Citroën" - Relaxing day in a Paris
Jul. 2018 • Solo
One of Paris' most recently-constructed parks. "Parc André Citroën" was built on the former site of the Citroen factory in 1992. Located in the 15th Arrondissement. It’s close to the Beaugrenelle center.
It is an excellent example of modern park design. It's a unique walk and a wonderful way to see a different, elevated perspective of the city. Very impressive use of plant material. The park is clean, very well-manicured and with ponds and ducks roaming freely. Some open spaces and some interesting water treatments. Lots of park benches and beautiful bamboo woods in the northern part. The weather balloon ride gives you a panoramic view of Paris. This place is for fun for all ages. Free toilets too. Definitely worth a visit!

Nice park
Apr. 2018 • Friends
This isn’t really a hidden gem as such but it is quite a nice place to go with family members for a nice walk. It’s more or less close to the Beaugrenelle center.
