  • I went there without a priori, so surprised by the ingenuity, the beauty, the interaction between the public and the projections. Great moment of emotion... almost in tears in front of the procession, as an exodus, iridescent and translucent which glided on the walls. These characters who greet us when you touch them... we have been long at all try this expo is a powerful experience... to me :-)

  • Visited this park in June 2018. Last visit was over 20 years ago. The park is certainly well maintained and a wonderful place for a family’s day out! Follies, red structures spread out in the park looks great with diverse activities and services available from my last visit. A must place if u are in Paris. You can also see Paris Philharmonic at the Park too!
  • Great place for kids. Lots of fun and educational activities. It does get quite crowded during weekends which is a little hard on the kids as they need to wait for many activities. It is also quite run down. Food options are the usual fast foods but it is really not a great experience mainly due to run down surroundings.
