A great family outing
The Jardin d’Acclimatation is undoubtedly one of the nicest green spaces in Paris. It offers many attractions. Visitors can take a boat trip across the Enchanted River, go for a ride on a pony (or even a dromedary!), have a laugh in front of the funhouse mirrors, get a fright in the "Forest Adventures", and much more. The garden also has many natural features, including the deer boulder, the educational apiary, the aviary, and the small Norman farm. Curious visitors will also be delighted to discover the Kiso house, an authentic 19th-century Japanese farm, the Korean garden, symbolising friendship between Paris and Seoul, and, of course, the Belvedere of the Empress.
The Jardin d’Acclimatation also offers several workshops for children, some of which are in English. Kids can experience cooking, painting, Chinese calligraphy, vegetable gardening, and more. Every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., there's a fun parent/child workshop on menu design.
