The Champ de Mars is a large green space and park in the French capital city, Paris. The park gets its name from Campus Martius(‘Mars field’) in Rome and also alludes to the fact of it being formerly used as a drilling and marching ground for the French army. Being a large flat area, the Champ de Mars is used for national events. It is a hotspot for people of the city to picnic, play music, relax and socialise and take in views of the monument that dominates over it, which is the Eiffel Tower.
To get to the park you can use the city’s transport system with the closest metro station being ‘École Militaire’. The other option is to take the bus with the 42, 69, 82 and 87 all travelling to the Champ de Mars.
Opening Times and Admission
The park is free to access and open all day every day. The park has seasonal events such as the Christmas Markets as well as events such as music festivals.
