Be warned you can't simply turn up and play like any other playground. They only allow entry at specific times (e.g. on the hour) and no matter how much your child wants, will not come over and open the gate at other times. Such a shame because one of the best play areas in Paris is being wasted, as wistful... More

After reading about this fabulous new playground on a blog, I put it on our must do list while we were in Paris. I had read that they take reservations for this playground, but as we were visiting in May, I figured it wouldn't be as crowded as in the summer. Unfortunately, on the Friday in May which we went,...

I took my children to Paris, and we basically stumbled onto this place on a Saturday afternoon when they are open to both children and adults for 4 hours. My kids (ages 7 and 8) met other children from Paris and London and had a blast. We came back several times the following week when the park is closed to... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
