There are no lanes marked on the street, and it's generally considered to be a complete free-for-all. When the tiny play areas called 'squares' (pronounced skwars) or aire de jeux are so overrun with enfants, meaning there is ten-minute queue for the slide and parents have to act like referees to prevent full-on toddler brawls. After ten minutes you will either lose your mind or your kid. We suggest you see the city on foot (Paris is an extremely walkable city) and that way you don't have to spend ten minutes with your face in someone's armpit. Unfortunately, this station marks many people's first impression of Paris as the Eurostar arrives here, as do trains from CDG airport. If you really can't hold it in, go to a cafe or bar to use the toilets.
