Paris has many beautiful parks and gardens.
A couple of years ago, we took a week in May to visit Paris and London. No trip would be complete without outdoor time — which often includes a park, arboretum or garden. On this trip, we took a Metro ride to the 19th arondissement, to the Parc de Buttes Chaumont.
It was lovely — a mix of things to see and spaces to explore. Some manicured, some wild. Despite its large scale, each spot still felt small and intimate enough to enjoy.
Worth a visit!
Where the sea meets the sky – British Columbia. Its unique climate make it one of the most garden-friendly places on earth. Here, some photos from the garden on “the hill” in Vancouver, Queen Elizabeth Park. Also worth (repeat) visits: VanDusen and Butchart (the latter is in Victoria).
