The Jardin des Tuileries is one of Paris’s most visited gardens thanks to its central location between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde.

It is one of those parks where you can grab a chair for free and sit wherever you like and watch your children play. It also features several fountains, two large basins, numerous sculptures, a caroussel, a playground … And in my opinion there is one good open air restaurant in The Jardin des Tuileries: Saut du Loup. Yes, even with children.

There are in addition to Saut du Loup, a few kiosks (Paul) and Cafes. Besides the Louvre Museum, Les Tuileries Gardens features two smaller museums: the Orangerie, famous for its Monet’s water lilies and Jeu de Paume.

This park is perfect for a Les enfants a Paris playdate.

If you are heading to des Tuileries, don’t forget to visit ‘the Grande Roue’, French for ‘big wheel,’ right in the busy central square, Place de la Concorde , the biggest square in all of Paris. From the wheel you have a beautiful view over Paris and at night you get to see the very nicely lighted Christmas market on the Champs-Elysées. A magical place to take the kids and enjoy a different perspective on the City of Light.
