Description:
The Bois de Boulogne () is a park located along the western edge of the 16th arrondissement of Paris, near the suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt and Neuilly-sur-Seine

The Bois de Boulogne covers an area of times larger than Central Park in New York, and comparable in size to Richmond Park in London.

The northern part of the Bois de Boulogne is occupied by the Jardin d'Acclimatation, an amusement park with a ménagerie and other attractions.

At night time, the area becomes one of Paris's most prominent red-light districts, though in recent years the French government has sought to eliminate prostitution in the park.

The Bois de Boulogne is full of activities on the weekends. Such as biking, jogging, boat rowing, remote control speed boats, picnics are held but barbecues are not allowed privately.
