Jardin de L’Acclimatation

The Jardin de l’Acclimatation in the Bois de Bologne is Paris’ own kiddie fun park, and it is great. My eldest daughter is finally old enough to enjoy it, so this past weekend we headed off for a day of fun-filled activities. I really recommend a visit if you ever happen to be in Paris with kids.

I will say it has the most random mix of attractions I have ever seen, but who I am to complain? The kids loved it.

These are my top tips to visiting the park:

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Again one of your great recommendations. I hadn’t realised that the “outskirts of Paris” are actually not that far away and we were there in no time. My 4 year old and 6 year old boys totally wore themselves out on the rides, particularly as we never had to queue. We didn’t make it anywhere near the farm, etc as they could barely speak. I thought my 4 year old was going to explode with excitement when he laid eyes on the roller coaster. You didn’t mention also that the entrance fee is only about 3 Euro (can’t imagine what it is at Disney….)
