16th Arrondissement – Bois de Boulogne

The 16th arrondissement is located to the west of Paris’ city centre. It incorporates the mammoth Bois de Boulogne which measures more than three square miles – two and a half times the size of New York’s Central Park. This lush parkland is adorned with impressively tall oak and cedar trees and some beautiful lakes and ponds. Historically the area was a place for bandits to hide out then later became an exclusive hunting park for the kings of France.

16th Arrondissement – Bois de Boulogne Highlights

Today you will find the park filled with sport lovers enjoying the 28km of bridle paths, 15 km of cycling trails and the 2.5 km fitness trail which incorporates outdoor resistance training equipment. Thousands of people are attracted to the park at weekends to take part in all kinds of fun activities including fishing, rollerblading, canoeing, horse riding and guided tours of the area. You can hire bicycles from just inside the main gates to the park. Rowing boats are also available for hire here for use on the pond.

If you are lucky enough to be visiting Paris in July then you may be able to join in the festivities of the 3-day weekend party held here annually. Over 50 bands perform live here to a largely student crowd and thousands of people camp out in the park over night. For the rest of the year at night time the park becomes the city’s most prominent red-light district although over the years the French government has been developing measures to eliminate prostitution from the parkland.

At the northern end of the district lies the beautiful Jardin d’Acclimatation, a children’s amusement park which encompasses 49 acres of land. You will find an archery range, a small menagerie, hall of mirrors, a miniature golf course, puppet theatre, pony rides, shooting galleries, an art museum for children known as the Musée en Herbe and the excellent Exploradôme, a science museum. The Jardin d’Acclimatation was originally opened in 1860 by Napoleon III and the Empress Eugenie as a zoo. Unfortunately many of the animals did not live long since during the Siege of Paris ten years later killed and cooked in one of Paris’ ‘finest’ restaurants by the famous chef of the time, Alexandre Étienne Choron. Later in 1877 with the growing Parisian interest in foreign lifestyles the park recreated itself as an ‘anthropological zoo’ ‘exhibiting’ human beings from Africa, disturbingly. It was extremely popular art the time, attracting millions to the park. Don’t let the dark history of the park put you off coming to visit. Children and adults alike will really enjoy today’s fun environment. Indeed whilst your children are being entertained you can join in one of the popular adult workshops and learn all about chocolate making, Egyptian belly-dancing or perfume creating.
