It's the easy way out, so practical and requiring no organization: a delight for children and parents alike, outdoor playgrounds are all the rage among little Parisians. Here are our favorites!

Playgrounds are the kid-friendly outing that always comes in handy, especially when you're out and about in Paris and the little ones are tired of walking: a quick trip to the playground and off you go again (or not necessarily). Always popular with children, who can go from one climbing track to the next, from one slide to the next, and from one agile, motorized and adventurous course to the next, and with parents, who can look forward to at least five minutes on a bench, playgrounds are kid-friendly spots par excellence, come wind, rain or snow!

With areas for toddlers aged 0-6 and larger playgrounds for 6-13 year old s (or older), it's a great opportunity to enjoy a family outing that's as much fun as it is sporty, and above all, an outing where your children will find it easier to walk, since play is part of it! In short, for all budding little adventurers, fans of acrobatic courses, slides, climbing walls or truly immersive spaces, Paris, and more broadly the Ile-de-France region, has no shortage of playgrounds where you can spend an entire afternoon letting off steam and having fun! And you, what are your favorite playgrounds with children, in Paris and the Ile-de-France region?

PS: the editors can't be held responsible if your kids don't want to go home after discovering these great playgrounds.
