What to do with children at La Villette?

La Villette is an authentic playground dotted with exciting activities for children to potter around on the lawn in the park, to go cycling, to roller blade safely and also to enjoy and discover the various themed facilities available.

Touch and Build

Located in Cité des Sciences, split into two distinct exhibitions (2-7 years and 5-12 years), Cité des enfants is an adventure playground designed to awaken children’s curiosity with: water games, a maze, construction work with wheelbarrows, small trolleys and a variety of rich and diverse interactive games to be explored for over more than one hour.

Children's Philharmonic... long live music

The Philharmonie de Paris has a play area for children from 4 to 10 years old around the theme of music. What is sound, try to become a conductor, play with your "voice", etc. In short, a playful place indoors and therefore open all year round!

Workshops in the park

Many workshops are proposed for subscribers throughout the year in the “red pavilion” follies of the park dotted with various themes: circus, dance, food catering, water activities… Children listen carefully to the coordinator, touch and experiment and test their abilities and senses while having fun.

Free outdoor games

For a breath of fresh air on a sunny day, go to l'Aire de Jeux des Vents to follow the different trail and activities centered on games: jumping on air bags, flying on a zip-line, playing in the sandpit…Time flies by when having fun! Children can aslo climb a huge steel dragon near the Cité des Sciences.
