“Excellent for kids”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Old fashioned park with lots for kids to do. There are rides and some animals inside as well as a wet area to play and refresh themselves which is particularly appropriate during the hot summer days of Paris.
If you're going there you better off taking your food with you and making a picnic as options inside the park are very limited and expensive.

“A wonderful day!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

After 3 weeks of exploring the wonders and sights of Europe with my 8 year old, we were lokking for a child centered and "normal" thing to do. this fit the bill perfectly! The rides were fun and age appropriate. There was lots to do, including several play grounds, animals to view, carnaval type games to play, a puppet show and a splash pad ... Which came in handy as it was 30 degrees celsius! many activitaies and the use of the park was only 3 euros. Per person, if you did rides and played gMes the cost goes up ... but we found it worth it for a nice family day. Overall it was a lovely day and we felt like a regular family out for a pleasant day rather tourists visiting the sights. Relaxing and fun for all.

“A best destination in Paris for a family/friends 'picnic'”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

In midst of the burgeoning city of Paris, is this small area of forest converted into a Jardin (Park) with a few amusement rides, farm animals zoo and vast patches of green spaces.

A best location to picnic, there is something soothing for parents as well, when the kids are tired and are ready to rest after playing those rides (priced at EU 1.5 or 3.00) hit the lawns which are well maintained, with friendly pigeons, peahens, peacocks, ducks walking all around. There are easy chairs and music playing in the background.

On a good sunny day head to the park at around noon, have your picnic lunch, play the rides, stretch on the lawns, sip your coffee in the cafeteria's positioned aptly and pack up at around 6 pm. A perfect day trip for families with kids.

The park staff are friendly and approachable.

“Still the best in-the-city kids playground in Paris”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The place is almost done with renovations and lots of new attractions have been added.

The budget minded can get an inexpensive entry ticket and have a blast with kids 1 to 12 all day. Parents inclined to splurge (like I was on this trip with my Godson I rarely see) can buy tickets for the paying attractions (roller-coasters and other rides).

Animals abound inside and outside cages, flowers are everywhere, and when the sun is there you can play in their water playground forever.

I used to love the place as a kid and 30 years later I am amazed with how good they made the place.

Thanks from all the parents!
