As I said earlier this month - May is full of holidays...I swear the kids have been home more than at school. We have been fortunate the the weather has been lovely this month - after all the rain in April. But I still feel like this month, I've been scrambling a little to find different things to do. Holidays are also hard as nothing is open. This leaves parks and other outdoor places for wandering around...so we just go off and investigate.
Lots of paved road for walking, biking or riding scooters..
Live animals to enjoy - peacock, ducks, pig, sheep - including many with babies
Beautiful flowers and greenery
A fun pond
A little train that rides around the park (love this ride 1 euro 50 for the ride!)
Motorized bikes/carts for kids (also a 1.50 euros)
and cool quiet walking trails
Definitely a place I want to return to...maybe it would be a great place to do some power walking or roller blading?...
What is also nice to see is that French families also enjoy the outdoors - we see lots of families biking, walking and strolling with scooters etc. Now we also enjoyed our parks in the Saratoga area - but it just seems to be a national pastime here - just to truly enjoy being outside. The weather also allows this.
My favorite photo is below...I feel it really captures the fun they had at this park. The girls were all just lying on the ground and looking up at the sky - resting but enjoying themselves. My youngest just looked so thrilled!
