Jardin du Luxembourg Playground!
Print Leave a comment
The Jardin du Luxembourg has a wonderful paid playground called Poussin Vert. Shaded by rows of adorable trees, the playground has every imaginable play structure for kids big and small.
The best part for big kids is a stretchy disc swing that takes up to three kids. Kids can go fast along the long course. What a blast! Also fun for big kids is the spinner, and three huge slides. There is a space net, and a wooden-style playground. Rope climbies in all different shapes are throughout the park. There are two metal rollers to stand and run on.
For toddlers there are plenty of bouncies, such as an elephant one. There is a sand pit, and there are colorful oddly shaped play structures. A train to climb is a fun addition. There is a red truck to climb, and a seesaw bouncy.
For parents there are benches in the shade. The playground is very noisy so it can really wear out parents.
Afterward go to a puppet show (marionettes), or on a pony ride in the park. Or sail a toy boat in the huge pond. There are also plenty of lovely paths and flowerbeds to explore.
