I continue to love Paris whatever the weather – and right now it’s mild, sunny, and perfect – so let me show you where I like to go for a stroll and breather in the fresh springtime air…
Welcome to Jardin Yitzhak Rabin – ponds, trees, vines, wildlife and plenty of unrestricted lawn. This park was opened in 2000, and dedicated to the late Israeli Prime Minister, an advocate of peace, who was assassinated in 1995.
Split into several sections, a shady trellis hugged by vines covering cobblestoned alleyways, vegetable patches, still pools with floating lily pads and some that house carp and little turtles. The plants here are cared for but allowed to grow freely and naturally. Perfect for relaxing, picnicking or simply strolling through, and if you’re in need of some retail therapy or get peckish, you have Bercy Village right next door, which is also open on Sundays.
Perch yourself on one of the light turquoise benches, read a book, meditate… Breathe in the nature, let the sunshine warm your skin and enjoy spring in the city of light!
