Parks & Gardens The parks in Paris are not just a break between attractions but sometimes the main attractions by themselves. There are over 400 parks and gardens in the city, some are huge while others are small and hidden; some are old, others are ancient, and some used to be royal gardens. There are the traditional gardens and the innovative, the verticals or the classics; but all of them are beautiful, very well kept and worth a visit.
