Last weekend we met up with Lena and her mum to visit the Jardin d’Acclimatation, an amusement park on the outskirts of Paris, set in the beautiful Bois de Boulogne.
Children can ride on a miniature train, try the rides in an amusement park, tour an old-time French farm, see puppet shows, visit an aviary and a zoo, go for a pony ride, and play on numerous fun and creative playgrounds, designed for children of different ages. And of course there are also a couple of carousels.
The Jardin d’Acclimatation is especially popular on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday when special programs and activities are arranged and families come out to enjoy the park.
For more information please visit www.jardindacclimatation.fr
Note that there is a small entrance fee. There are plenty of free playgrounds and activities, but things like amusement park rides, bungies, and trampolines all carry an extra charge, which can range from about 3-7€, depending on the activity. Many of the rides are near the Sablons entrance, so you may want to head directly for the farm or playground.
A couple of snapshots of Alexander and Lena having fun …
Lena is wearing her new Mini Mignon top with pineapple print combined with her molo jeans skirt and Armani Kids boots. Alexander is wearing his soft denim cotton short by Bonnet a Pompon via the webshop Lace and Ribbons combined with green trousers by Noch Mini via the webshop Maysons.nl, his Rabbit prin T-shirt by Le Marchand d’Etoiles and his 10is trainers via www.lescassepieds.be.
Lena is thinking where to go next! So much to do in Jardin d’Acclimatation.

Yippie!! Such a happy place for kids!
Taking a break by the rocks.
Relaxing with a view. You can even rent a paddle boat and enjoy the lake.
Happy but exhausted kid on our way to the last attraction of the day.. The Carrousel.
