Outdoor Activities in Paris: Enjoy the Summer in the City of Light

Published on 5 July 2024 in Visit Paris

Paris in the summer is an invitation to explore its numerous outdoor activities. The city is brimming with lush parks, lively riversides, and cultural events under the blue sky. Whether you are a fan of relaxation, sports, or culture, Paris has something to charm you.

Strolls and Relaxation in Parisian Parks

The parks and gardens of Paris are green oases in the heart of the city. The Luxembourg Gardens are a must-see with their vast lawns, fountains, and statues. Ideal for a morning walk or a picnic, they also offer chairs to rest in the shade of century-old trees.
The Bois de Boulogne, in the west of Paris, is another perfect spot to escape the urban hustle. With its lakes where you can go boating, its trails for running or cycling, and its playgrounds for children, it's a complete recreational space. Don't miss the Parc de la Villette, known for its outdoor concerts and artistic installations that enliven summer evenings.

Paris Plages and Outdoor Cultural Activities

Since 2002, Paris Plages has been a highlight of the Parisian summer, offering relaxation, sunshine, and ice cream by the water. This year, the edition is particularly special due to the Games. Indeed, Paris Plages is expanding and introducing a new relaxation site: the Canal Saint-Martin, now dubbed the new "Parisian Croisette."
With this expansion, Paris Plages promises an even richer summer season of activities. Parisians and visitors can enjoy extended urban vacations from July 6 to September 8. This initiative aims to provide residents and tourists with an additional space to relax and participate in various activities while enjoying the festive atmosphere of the summer's sporting event.
For culture enthusiasts, outdoor festivals are a must. Don't miss the 20th edition of Rock en Seine on August 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25 at the National Domain of Saint-Cloud Park.

Paris in the summer offers a multitude of outdoor activities, from peaceful strolls in its parks to lively festivals. Every moment spent outside will allow you to see the city in a new light.
