With the iconic Eiffel Tower overlooking this park, this place will always be filled with tourists. But there is a lot of room to spread out, whether on the grass or on the benches. There are secluded sections where groups spread out with a picnic basket.

At night, you hear a collective cheer from all parts of the park at the top of every hour when the Eiffel Tower glitters. At 1am, the regular lights turn off unlike the earlier light shows, and the sparkling lights glitter, making for a unique light show right before the tower goes dark.

This park should be its own stop, aside from the Eiffel Tower, to rest and take in the scenery.

There is a free toilet available during the day.

Le Mur de la Paix (The Peace Wall) there is a glass art installation on the Parc du Champ de Mars at Place Joffre is this wall with the work peace written in 32 languages. There is a piece of the wall missing now but it is still cool to get pictures of the Eiffel Tower in the background with this. When you are at the Eiffel Tower, just walk towards the Ecole Militarie. You can't miss it.

my boyfriend and i had a picnic here on our first night. We stopped at a local supermarket and bought some bread, salmon, cream cheese, water and wine. We also bought 2 scarves from a souvenier shop to use as a 'blanket'. We had the most beautiful view to admire! Every 30 minutes or so the Eiffel Tower lights up into thousands of tiny lights making it all very twinkly and pretty. it definitely is the best view of the Eiffel Tower at night!

We visited this park every evening during our honeymoon in July. Visit the supermarket on La Motte Picquet for some cheese, bread and wine and then relax in the park watching the sun go down, the tower light up and the world pass by.
