The Scouting Report

Parc de Paris is surrounded by apartment complexes and as a result, feels a bit dense and congested. However, there is just enough space that allows for visitors to enjoy a small reprieve from the urban neighborhoods encircling the park.

This park is unique in that it carries somewhat of a French theme. A few of the more iconic Parisian landmarks can be found in miniature versions in the park.

The Fountain

In the summer, a small man-made pond in the middle of the park offers a pleasant fountain show. It is a popular place to gather in the evening for the locals.

Walking Paths

There are small walking trails that go around the edge of the park. Planners have done their best to make the trails as 'green' as possible. Considering that they run parallel with the street, said planners have expertly used landscaping to block views of the road.

Pump Iron

If you're looking to pump some iron or get the blood flowing, there are weights and exercise machines scattered all over the park.

Benches & Gaming

There are benches all around the park. There are some indoor benches in the park office.
