Paris - Bois de Boulogne

Thursday 14 September 2006 by Mentom2
Bois de Boulogne The Bois de Boulogne is a park located along the western edge of the 16ème arrondissement of Paris, near the suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt. It has a vaste area, it is more than two times larger than Central Park in New York, and more than three times larger than Hyde Park in London. These "Boulogne Woods" are a remnant of the ancient oak forest of Rouvray, which was first mentioned in 717, in the charter of Compiègne.
Stepping back to the 21st century, if you are working (...)

I would be careful running in certain areas during the day. I am a 21 year old petite female, and I have run here most of the time without any problems. However, if you are running alone and if there are not too many people around, it may be better to stay on main trails and not the smaller trails that weave through the forest. Just the other day I was running through these smaller trails at 3 in the afternoon. Not many people were around, and a scary man literally chased me for about 11 minutes of my run and I passed a few prostitute tents. So I’d say that it is safe, but stay where there are more people around, especially if you are running alone or look like an easy target, as I do. Happy Running!
