The Parc de Monceau in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the Arc de Triomphe. This is a very pretty park off the beaten tourist path. The domed building houses the restrooms; known as the Chartres Pavilion, it was originally a toll-house in the Farmers General Wall around Paris. The first parachutist landed in this park in 1797.
