10 terraces in Paris to enjoy with kids

I have always been impressed by the sense of organization (and party) of Madrid: have you noticed that there is always a good tapas bar .... near a playground .. .?

And yes, it's not easy to savor a little drink (with or without alcohol :-)) when children are stamping on their seat ...

So, I selected for you 10 terraces in Paris where it is nice to spend a moment .. and where children can play nearby (of course you will always have an eye on them ;-))

Place Igor Stravinsky, the most artistic terrace

A beautiful colorful place near Beaubourg

Take your time on the terrace, admire Niki de St Phalle's Nana statues... while your kids can skate, go scootering, play hopscotch .. or just sit down and watch the water from the fountain

And you can pair this moment of relaxation with a nice Street Art Walk In the Marais :-)

Parc de Belleville, the Picnic terrace :-)

Here you will not be on the terrace of a cafe but you can take a drink and somethign to sack at the bars that are on the square and savour all of this on the lawns of Parc de Belleville, admiring the unique view over Paris (and the Eiffel Tower !)

and in addition the magic of Ménilmontant Street Art is waiting for you a few steps away

Café Marly, Pyramide du Louvre, the magical terrace

We break a little the piggy bank to have lunch at Café Marly ... The view on Place de la Pyramide du Louvre is unique ... and you can watch over your kids playing!

It can be a nice reward after taking the walk Tuileries Louvre :-) 

But you also have small restaurants / snacks with terrace in the Tuileries:

The Brumaire in the Parc de St Cloud, the country terrace

At the gates of Paris and we could swear we are in the countryside :-)

In the center of the area of ​​St Cloud, accessible by car, a terrace at the entrance of the woods where the children can run and play in the big greenways!

The Parc de St Cloud really is a little gem to discover: easy access (tram and car), it combines French gardens, English gardens and forest where we can meet a doe and build huts!

Children can even go on a rosalie nearby!

Quartier des Batignolles, the most "Bobo" terraces ;-)

A great opportunity to discover this district of Batignolles who are full of pleasant terraces and vintage decoration shops (and of Street Art !) :-))

2 pleasant terraces with space around: that of Place F. Lobligeois and R.Baret

The most flowery terrace ... at Parc Floral de Vincennes!

For those who had tested the Hanging Garden last year ... it turns into La Bamba ... a whole program! The musical background always is there with, we hope, a "Kids Friendly" welcoming.

And Mega Scoop for you, there will soon be a street art tour of Vincennes :-)

Opening on June, 18th

New terrace by Rosa Bonheur at the Bois de Vincennes

After the quays, the Buttes Chaumont, Rosa Bonheur's fgestive team settles at the Chalet de la Porte Jaune within the Bois de Vincennes .. Beach Club announced, we cross the fingers for a petanque field!

Vincennes Rosa

We also hope to find the Rosa Bonheur of the quays in Asnières where one could peacefully have lunch, cool down by the water .. and try to play Molki!

The garden 21, the cultural and vegetable terrace!

1600 m² of garden and flower beds by the Ourq Canal in the Parc de La Villette, with bar and restaurant .... and lots of activities, exhibitions, concerts

The KM25, the picturesque terrace

Opening on the 18/06!

As its name suggests "Place of life of peripheral culture", is a nice place to explore and discover!

We can not wait to discover the planned activities

During the day, a village in the city with its designer markets and workshops.

At night, electronic music on the programme (rather for parents :-))

12 Allée Ella Fitzgerald 19th (at the foot of the cable car ;-))

The most sporty, the terrasse du Cam in Montrouge

We cross the fingers for the reopening of this place that has tennis courts next to the terraces!

60 Avenue Max Dormoy in Montrouge

+ 1 Bonus address suggested by an explorer mom: the rRiver Café in Issy les Moulineaux

A nice setting aboard a barge, a small terrace but especially activities led by animators for children :-)

Welcome back to the terraces (with moderation :-))!
