Parc Montsouris

The Parc Montsouris is one of the largest green spaces in Paris. It is located in the 14th arrondissement, between rue d'Alésia and the Cité Universitaire de Paris student accommodation. The park's proximity to the Cité Universitaire makes it a favourite walking spot for students. Built under Napoléon III and opened in 1969, the Parc Montsouris comprises a lake, beautiful statues, remarkable trees (Chinese parasol tree, Diospros kaki or Japanese persimmon tree ... ) and the restaurant 'Pavillon Montsouris', as well as being home to many different species of birds. Visitors can also see Montsouris meteorological observatory and the 'mire du Sud', a monument marking the location of the Paris meridian. The Montsouris reservoir, which holds a third of the drinking water consumed by Parisians, is open to the public once a year, on European Heritage Days. Many free concerts are given from May to September at the bandstand.
