The Bois de Vincennes, which translates to the Woods of Vincennes in English, is a major park in the far eastern section of Paris, France.
Located net to the Château de Vincennes, one of the major residences of the kings of France, the area is heavily landscaped with attractions that one would expect would attract royalty as well as the landed gentry.
The grounds include a botanical garden and arboretum, a zoo, an English garden featuring four lakes, a horse racing track and a velodrome for bicycle races. Also located here is the French National Institute for Sports and Physical Education.Places nearby:
