Things to do in Paris with Kids – Paris Playground “The Land of Adventures”

 
Paris playgrounds can be really tricky to find, and most of the ones we found on our family vacations to Paris were hidden surprises – not on any map, blog, or tourist information brochure we picked up. It seems only those in the know can find them. But luckily, you have us on the job. We make it our mission to find and share all the best things to do in Paris with Kids, including sharing the exact locations of the Paris Playgrounds we find. (Let us know of your family travel finds and we’ll add them to the list).
 
On our last trip to Paris, we stumbled upon the coolest adventure playground we’ve seen in Paris. We’d taken one of the backroads to make it back to our hotel due to some noisy roadworks and this playground appeared out of nowhere – we originally spotted three green “alien spaceship” type pods high up in the air and went in to investigate. (We stayed at the Novotel Paris les Halles and we highly recommend it. Check latest prices here.)
 
Upon closer inspection, these three pods were part of a new and innovative adventure playground in Paris called the ‘Terrain d’aventures’. Ned raced to the gate and waited to be let in.
 

Unique Paris Playground

 
A 2500 m² unique and educational playground space, open 6 days a week, in the heart of Paris that invites children to imagine, play, socialise and develop their physical capacities! The team of the sculptor Henri Marquet imagined a universe “halfway between the Wizard of Oz and Mario Bros”, with innovative games. If you are looking for family activities in Paris, put this playground on your list.
 
The Terrain d’Aventures is open only to children, supervised by play leaders. It is organised as a course with micro-landscapes with varied reliefs and has plenty of green space.
 
This Paris playground combines never before seen recreational facilities and monumental sculptures that are perfect for daydreaming and storytelling, plus there are spaces for spontaneous games, resting places, and shows. Plus the creators have embedded electronics in an innovative way to plunge children into the games ” for real”.
 

Paris with Toddler

 
Sadly, kids under 7 are not allowed in. Neither were parents. But Jack and I kept an eye on Ned’s adventuring while playing on the smaller toddler playground right next door. Not quite the same, but a lovely spot to interact with local families in any case.
 

Kids in Paris

 
Do make a beeline for this playground in amongst your wanderings on the Right Bank. It’s only about a 5-10 minute walk from the Louvre, and is surrounded by magnificent Parisian architecture so while the kids play, you can dream of Parisian lifestyles and what it would be like to live in one of these grand apartments.
 

Paris for Children – What’s at the Playground?

 
The Terrain d’aventures Playground is filled with challenges. Kids can:

  • balance their way through tunnels along thick rope
  • clamber their way up and through the pods
  • scramble up and down different levels
  • traipse through a rainbow corridor
  • balance on gym equipment
  • slide down gigantic slides
