Jardin d’Acclimatation (Bois de Boulogne, 75016 Paris)

Our second favourite one is the Jardin d’Acclimatation. Jardin d’ Acclimatation is an exciting fun park in Paris with pony rides, puppet shows and roller coasters. Apart from these there are several other workshops and physical activities as well. The Jardin d’Acclimatation is the perfect activity as well as the perfect place to go in the summer with children.

Jardin des Tuileries (113 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris)

The fourth place to go with kids is the Jardin des Tuileries. Jardin des Tuileries is a huge playground in Paris. The playground is most enjoyable above the age of 5 because of the metal structures and the rope tunnels but apart from these several other challenges are waiting for the kids as well. The playground is situated in a beautiful park and during summers a carnival takes over the place makes the place even more enjoyable.

Aquarium de Paris (5 Avenue Albert de Mun, 75016 Paris)

Aquarium de Paris is definitely a must go place in Paris especially with children. Aquarium de Paris gives home to several animals including sharks, sturgeons and other fishes and sea creatures as well. Visitors who love sharks will especially love the shark tunnel and the ones who like interacting more with animals will enjoy petting the friendly sturgeons in a pool. On Wednesdays and weekends special children shows are waiting for the kids.
