At 2,200 acres, the Bois de Boulogne is the city's largest and, perhaps, best known park. It is part of a once huge forest hunting reserve and is now owned by the City of Paris. Its wooded areas include hornbeams, beech, linden, chestnut, elm and many other species of trees.

In the 1850's, Baron Haussmann landscaped the area using London's Hyde Park as a model.
