Red playground.  Silver playground.  Green playground.  Each playground in our neighborhood in Manhattan is nick-named by it’s color.  After two days of travelling with a 3 year old through Paris without any jumping, climbing or sliding, or even a view of a playground– we were determined to find one for her.

There’s this little garden near our home with 2 slides and 2 rockers.  Not too bad– it’s a start.  So Dan started the morning taking her there, while I was thoroughly engrossed in this book.

For any parents reading this and looking for playgrounds in Southeastern Paris or Ivry:

Playground #1 is near the Pierre + Marie Curie station off of the 7; on the corner of Rue Baudin and the Square des Allies).

Playground #2 is on Rue Tagore between Avenue d’Italie and Rue Gandon (near Porte d’Italie stop off the 7). Note the water feature is extensive and may require a change of clothes for active children.

About jaimeanne

I'm me. Graphic designer extraordinaire, urban master teacher of social studies, former adjunct professor, high school principal, and now most importantly-- Mom to the cutest little girl ever. I try to live by the quote, "Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt, And dance like no one's watching." I believe in Christ, and sometimes I'm just trying to figure out what He wants me to do. This blog chronicles that journey.
