Our kids are getting a little too old for playgrounds but they still love to climb, spin, and hang on the monkey bars. Imagine our surprise then to find that the equipment at the American School, in the Bois de Boulogne, and on the Champs de Mars is exactly the same as that on the playground of our old school in DC. Paris itself has plenty of playgrounds; it seems that every little pocket park has a slide or a sandbox although most are designed for the under 4 set. The one thing you never find though is swings! Don't know whether this is a safety or maintenance issue or if French kids would just rather climb than sit.
