We took the kids to the Jardin d'acclimitation last weekend to celebrate the beginning of Spring in Paris. The Jardin d'acclimitation is located just off the Bois de Boulogne in Paris 16th arrondissement and is basically an amusement park for small children that dates back to 1860. Kids from age 2 and up can ride carrousels and mechanical horses and the older kids can even go on their first roller coasters. Various children's classes from cooking to gardening are also offered on Wednesdays, weekends and school holidays. There's also a theatre and a water park in the warmer months. You will even find a section of Gymboree with parent toddler classes for children 10 months and up.
While it doesn't cost much to get in, a mere 2.90 euros for everyone age 3 and up, you will most likely spend a small fortune on tickets for all the attractions at 2.70 euros a pop. Some rides even ask for multiple tickets.
The kids certainly had a wonderful time and we even got out without a meltdown. We ended our day with a calming walk in the woods of Boulogne before heading home.
Entrance for Age 3 and up 2.90 euros
Attraction 1 ticket 2.70 euros (Book of 15 32,00 euros)
