It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of la ville loumiere, but picnics in its many city parks are a steady part of the local culture and an expression of its joie de vivre. Some Parisians resort to picnics as an affordable alternative to dining out, others do it to fully enjoy the marvellous green areas the city has to offer. What’s for sure, once you spread your blanket and set your hamper on the grass, you will be in good company and ready to join the local picnic season!
Whether you prefer to pack your own food prepared in your Yays apartment or pick up take-out from a local bakery or restaurant, the neighbourhood has got you covered: browse your Yays Neighbourhood Guide or ask your Concierge to help you choose, and get ready to enjoy your picnic like a real Parisian!
You don’t have to go far to find a perfect picnic spot: take your picnic hamper to Parc Henri Barbusse or Parc de L’ile Saint-Germain, just a stroll away from Yays Issy.
