Water, water!
Guide to water games in Parisian parks

It's hot, too hot. Quickly a corner with water! In addition to Parisian pools with small pool for children or Aquaboulevard which is of course a must in the summer, or finally the new swimmable area of Paris Beaches at Villettethere's the option of water games in some parks in Paris. Water games in Parisian parks are unfortunately still too rare. The nicest one is of course the acclimatisation garden (you can easily spend the day there, but there is a charge for admission), but if you are short of time, don't forget to the André Citroën park in the 15th or Martin Luther King Park in the 17th.. They are equipped with water games that will please your children for sure! To the north of Paris, the very large Courneuve park also has a beautiful water playground.
