Did you know?
The Bois de Vincennes lumberjacks are assisted by working horses. You can meet these magnificent equine giants on Saturdays and Sundays at the Ferme de Paris, where they spend their well-deserved weekend off.
Take a boat trip on Daumesnil lake or Minimes lake to admire the barnacle geese and herons, then watch an amusing Guignol puppet show or take the family to the Parc Floral for a round of mini golf. Sounds like a plan, right? Unless you’d rather try a nature workshop at the Porte Dorée Aquarium, followed by a trip to the puppet theatre at Saint-Mandé lake, and round off the day with a Nomade Escape orienteering challenge at the Parc Floral.
A holiday full of thrills
Emotions run high at the Parc Floral’s treetop adventure trail, Accrobranches (registered trademark), where the fun takes place 12 metres above the ground! Be brave and enter a Mongolian yurt for an escape game with a difference! Join a zoo-keeper workshop for the magical experience of tending to lemurs and manatees at the Parc Zoologique. A memorable moment that’s sure to leave you starry-eyed!
A holiday passion
Horse-mad children? Take them to Daumesnil lake or Saint Mandé lake for a pony ride before letting them loose on the swings and giant slides at the Parc Floral play area. Sunday at the races Take the family to Vincennes Hippodrome to spend a “Superdimanche” (super Sunday) with a super theme, super activities and super snacks for the kids. During each school holiday period, the Bayard and Cartoucherie riding clubs organise courses of riding lessons for all levels. Book well ahead! Walk, trot, canter… go for it!
