In a city where space is a prized commodity, Paris’s panoply of squares, parks and play areas are popular springtime hangouts for locals and tourists escaping from the bustle of urban life. To the east of the city lies the capital’s largest park, the Bois de Vincennes, which has an eclectic assortment of attractions including a boating lake, Buddhist temple and theatre stages. Keen horticulturalists may prefer the Jardin des Plantes botanical gardens in the 5th arrondissement, which house more than 1,000 species, as well as tropical greenhouses and rose gardens.
