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 Villette, there is the option of water games in some parks in Paris. The water games in Parisian parks are unfortunately still too rare. The most fun is of course the garden acclimatization (you can easily spend the day, but the entrance is not free), but if you run out of time, do not forget the park André Citroën in the 15th or Martin Park Luther King in the 17th. They are equipped with water games that will please your children, that's for sure!
