Sabadell is a perfect place to go as a family, with many sights to see and visit. But you also have to set aside some time so that the kids can enjoy some age-appropriate activities while letting the adults relax and unwind from the stress of the journey.
Do you have to go all the way to Barcelona to keep them entertained? Not at all! Here are six plans in Sabadell that are perfect for families with children.
Instituto de Paleontología Miguel Crusafont
On Carrer Industrial street, you’ll find one of the most important paleontology research institutes in the world. What’s more, they invite visitors to take a journey through time and learn about when dinosaurs roamed the earth.
It wouldn’t be a bad idea to check the activities offered so that you can plan your visit to the city when there are children’s activities. For example, they can play exploration games like dinosaur hunter or make their very own dinosaur print. Also, they’ll learn a lot about these animals thanks to all of the skeletal remains exhibited throughout the museum.
La Torre de l’Aigua
For adults, a visit to Sabadell’s famous water tower can be an opportunity to learn a bit about the evolution of the city in the early 20th century, while for children, it can be a place to let their imaginations run wild. After all, this tower would be perfect for Rapunzel.
This place is a must-see if you are touring the city. You’ll learn how the city’s water supply system worked back then, and if you hire a guide, you will also be able to visit the old laundries and public fountains that are still maintained by the city to this day.
Train in Parc de Catalunya
Spending a day in Parc de Catalunya is an excellent idea if you come to Sabadell in the summertime. Wildlife, plants, ponds, and best of all, spots where you can eat outdoors and enjoy the great weather while the kids play.
But there is one activity that has become a favorite among the little ones, and it’s the famous Parc de Catalunya train. A 20-minute ride along three kilometers of track where you can take in the beauty of the surrounding nature in comfortable carriages for grownups and children alike.
Furthermore, there are different routes and different trains, so there’s always something new to ride. Are you going to miss out on an opportunity like this? Because your kids may never let you hear the end of it.
Parque Can Gambús
Now we move on to another park that is a bit farther from the Sabadell city center, but parents will be rewarded with a delicious meal. This park is where La Capella restaurant is located, a renovated vegetarian and vegan restaurant where you can enjoy lunch, dinner or have a drink.
Also, very close to the restaurant is a large open area where the children can play as parents keep an eye on them from nearby. What’s more, you might get lucky and arrive during some cultural, musical or cinema event. Many times, activities are organized for kids with plenty of games.
Theaters specializing in family entertainment
You’re not going to spend the entire trip walking from place to place sightseeing in Sabadell, right? Of course not! You’ll want to find places where you can sit down and enjoy a nice show.
There are several family theaters scattered throughout the city where they put on fantastic plays for the whole family. For example, LaSala Theater or the Joventut de la Faràndula Theatre, which recently showed Hansel i Gretel and Ratatoui
lle, el Petit Xef. And that’s not to mention the Centre Sant Vicent Theater, where they performed an excellent version of Hèrcules, un Viatge a l’Antigua Grècia.
