Super découverte cet acrochats Plaisir.
Nous avons passé un très bon samedi, les enfants se sont amusés jusqu’à épuisement et nous avons pu profité des canapés pour les surveiller.
Parc de jeux très bien fait avec plusieurs structures, accueil chaleureux, à refaire.
Attention, c’est quand même assez bruyant mais on s’y fait.
