Things to do with a kid or toddler in Brussels: Slide, climb and swing at Parc Georges Henri

Happy Saturday! Now three months after the arrival of babatwo, things have finally settled into a routine. That means more exploring new, cool things to do with babies, toddlers and kids around Brussels!

Its no secret that there are a wealth of fantastic parks in Brussels but Parc Georges Henris slides put all others to shame. I must admit, I had been through Parc Georges Henri before having kids and just made note of the nice walking paths and proximity to Capoue. Last fall, I met a friend there and was truly amazed at the great adventure set up they have.  Tons of climbing options, swings, tunnels and three octopus leg slides. I had the pleasure of going for a ride on this last visit and it was a blast until I landed with an ungraceful thud at the bottom. Old people don’t bounce :-).

The play area is more geared to the 3+ group with 5 – 7 as its sweet spot. There is a small toddler area but when checking out the main play areas with bababoo, she seemed bit overwhelmed, not to mention in danger of getting smushed by her marauding elders.

Besides the play area, there are nice fields for running and playing as well as an outdoor gym area in case you want to get in on the action. Don’t forget to treat the little ones to some yummy ice cream on the way out, if you dare.

Where: Square Meudon, 1200 Brussels (WOLUWE-SAINT-LAMBERT) near Metro Gribaumont. The play area is in the back of the park.

  1. I just discovered your blog – and love it! We lived in Brussels for a year before we had our daughter and I had no idea Brussels is so baby friendly. We’ll be bringing our 10 months old back for a visit soon, so thank you for sharing all the cool spots (will be checking out Le Wolf for sure, since it’s so conveniently located)

    Do you have any children-friendly restaurant suggestions? And, this might be a dumb question, are high chairs pretty common in restaurants?

    1. HI Jenny, Brussels does indeed have its child friendly moments. 🙂 High chairs are not all that common but a call ahead can confirm. The restaurant/cafe with all the mommy buzz at the moment is Haricot Magique. http://www.haricotmagique.be/ It is specifically designed with families in mind. I have found Pain Quodidian nice for lunches and if you are after something special, Henri is our favorite with high chairs and a relaxed attitude. http://www.restohenri.be/

  2. I am just searching some site. Actually i want to purchase swing and slide for my child. I have got some relevant information here. Nice work.
