Le Parc de la Turlure is a peaceful square located behind the Sacre-Coeur Basilica and it is quite isolated in contrast with the people and tourists occupying the frontage and inside the beautiful church. The area has a garden and the small amphitheater with some ornamental shrubs and few seats and a playground. The place is ideal for picnic or a short stop. One can also get the best perspective of the Basilica. Rue de la Bonne, 75018 Paris
Parc de Sceaux
Located around a 30-minute train ride from central Paris, the Parc de Sceaux has some of the loveliest cherry blossoms in all of Ile-de-France. The park will have a special weekend on April 20-21, 2019 dedicated to the blossoms, similar to a Japanese Sakura festival. While this could be fun, it does get crowded, so if you can make it out during the week that’s best. Pack some snacks and a blanket to lay down under a cherry tree-—it’s a beautiful way to enjoy spring and get out of the city!
