Parks, gardens and green spaces
Take your dog for a walk in Paris 

To take your dog for a walk in Paris, best alternative will be parcs and green spaces. But the entrance of some of them could be part way restricted. 
You can easily go to Parc des Buttes Chaumont with your dog and enjoy a wonderful point of view over Paris. 
More far away from the city center, but where it is tolerated to release your dog from the lead, you can choose Bois de Boulogne on the west side of Paris. It’s an unlimited playground for your dog. The same way, Bois de Vincennes with Daumesnil lake on the east side of Paris is the favorite place of Parisians dog lovers.  

Discover the best architectural places and touristic spots from the outside by having a walk on the Quais de Seine. Your eye will easily catch Notre Dame de Paris, the Louvre museum, the orsay museum, the Alexandre III bridge with invalides, the eiffel tower and so many more to discover. 
To enjoy a more authentic walk, you can follow the Canal Saint Martin and the tide locks. You will deep into the old Parisian aesthetic walking on traditional cobbled lanes, observing the view with your dog from the old bridges, and taking a break in the small green spaces along the river.
