The Bois de Vincennes is a nice park in the east edge of Paris, with a gigantic lake and nice activities. Rowboats can be rented, and children can mount ponies for a 10-min ride. The best part about this park is that it is easily accessible by subway (Metro Line 8, Porte Dorée stop); because of that, a lot of Parisians living on the east side have made it their preferred place for picnics and outdoor activities such as jogging or tanning.

There is also a great number of animals roaming all over the park, especially ducks and peacocks. The focus of the pictures today is on the latter.
