Parc Monceau – 1k loop

October 28, 2010

Parc Monceau is located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France, and was established in 1769 by Phillipe d’Orléons, Duke of Chartres. Designer, Louis Carrogis Carmontelle, lover of all things English, wanted to create an informal English-style garden in the center of Paris.

In this gem, you will find infants, toddlers wandering unattended, teenagers smoking and playing soccer, couples necking and centenarians strolling or being wheeled around at zazen pace.

The curved walkways make it ideal for running.  A loop around the perimeter is just over 1k.
