Oh my God, time has flown..... Since the last post I went back to work full time, went on our yearly family trip to Argentina and back, and have been so busy and generally feeling like a mad-chicken that I have neglected Brussels with Kids more than intended. So here I am, trying to get back on track.
On Sunday mornings, we typically go for breakfast at our coffee place of choice and then, weather permiting, go for a little walk. A couple of weeks ago, we headed to the nearby Plaine Renier Chalon, so that Bibu and Pingu could stretch their legs. Renier Chalon is one of the biggest playgrounds in Ixelles and certainly one of the best kept.
It consists of a huge sandy playground with climbing structures for grown-up kids and a separate area for toddlers (which was under renovation when we were there), a basketball field and a mini-football field. The toilets are clean and well maintained, with a nappy-changing table. There is only one entrance, which is importante in terms of safety.
But one of the best discoveries we made on our visit was the indoor play area for babies and toddlers (0 to 3 years) next to the basketball field. It is called "La Margelle" and it is open on Mondays from 14:30 to 17:30 and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 09:00 to 12:00. La Margelle was closed when we where there, but it looked well appointed, full of nice soft toys and books. Definitely a great idea, specially when the weather is not great.
