The holy Catherine Labouré Garden

Located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, this garden was once the property of the “Filles de Charité”, who were a group of nuns. It was named after Catherine Labouré (one of the nuns), who claimed to have seen the Virgin Mary appear before her on several occasions. Open to the public since 1977, this garden is now an intimate and welcoming spot where people enjoy picnicking in the heart of Paris, away from the bustle of the city.

The lively Parc André Citroën

Surrounded by water, trees, water jets, a hot air balloon and endless sources of entertainment, the André Citroën park is for those who love vibrant spots. It is a popular place for young Parisians to meet up! A lot of people go there to enjoy outdoor activities (Tai-chi, gym, dance, badminton, juggling). It’s the perfect spot to socialize and spend a relaxing afternoon with a nice picnic under the sun. And for those who would like to see Paris from above, try a trip in a hot air balloon!
