Why Don’t You: Visit the Trampolines in the Tuileries
Why don’t you…
loose the kids on the Trampolines in the Jardin des Tuileries, let them jump around like crazy maniacs until they are nice and exhausted so then you can take a quiet stroll in the gardens or sip a cafe créme or chocolate chaud in a moment of peace surrounded by beauty (while they actually sit still).
The Trampolines are great energy extractors for kids aged 2 to 12. They are closer to the Place de la Concorde exit on the Rue de Rivoli side, 6 of them.They are easy to miss if you are walking down the grande allée. They are located close to the rue de Rivoli and the Tuileries metro exit or the Place de la Concorde exit.
And if the trampolines aren’t enough there is a crazy amazing playground (un aire de jeu) next to the trampolines to mop up any leftover energy.
