Launched in May 2016, Little Villette offers free activities for young children in Paris. The activities take place at the Pavillon Paul-Delouvrier, a 1,000 square meter space within the Parc de la Villette. Kids and their families can enjoy a variety of free activities ranging from board games and coloring to a variety of fun and educational workshops. The space is in the Par de la Villette, Paris’ third largest park, which is also the site of a number of free festivals throughout the year.
