kids1If you're looking to entertain your kids in the South of france this summer and you are looking for something with a bit of a difference, then the Ecopark Adventure park France could be for you. Set in dense forest in the hills above Toulon, Ecopark specialises in tree climbing adventures, encompassing abseiling, tree canopy walks and rope ladders. Whilst this may not be for those fearful of heights (like me!), this is great fun. It takes you back to being 10 years old again. Oh and the kids will enjoy it as well.
