A holiday with kids

Bordeaux loves children, and the feeling is mutual. Whether at Cap Sciences, the skatepark, the Miroir d'Eau, the Parc Bordelais or the riverside sports facilities at Saint-Michel, there is no shortage of stimulating places and activities for kids from toddlers to pre-teens and teens. Whether they're in pushchairs or zipping by on scooters, blades or boards, the city welcomes them with open arms. And when they need a little intellectual stimulation, the city's many bookshops, theatres and cinemas also cater for a young public.
