The Wansen Wansen Forest is completely different from the rest of the hustle and bustle, no tourists, it is a real oasis in the city, visible all day. [Fun] The forest is surrounded by Benson Castle and Dore Palace.

Additional Information

Introduction

A Jardin Anglais, English garden, formally named a public park in 1860, Bois de Vincennes, named for the nearby village of Vincennes, serves a crucial role in a system of parks colloquially named the "lungs of Paris." Situated on the river Marne, the 995 hectare park occupies nearly triple the space of New York City's Central Park. It remained the lawn and king's hunting grounds for the nearby castle, Chateau de Vincente, beginning with the castle's construction between 1340 and 1410, and ending during the French Revolution. Four lakes, a zoo, and English style landscaping create a romantic renaissance-era atmosphere.
