New to Wallisellen

We have recently moved to Wallisellen and were wondering if anyone could suggest fun things to do with our young children - parks, playgrounds, playgroups, etc.

We have a 3 year old son and 6 month old twins boys.

Thanks a lot!

Re: New to Wallisellen

I am an Asian currently living in Zurich City. My husband and I just purchased an apartment in Wallisellen (developed by All Real) which will be completed next September. As a foreigner, Wallisellen SEEMS to have alot to offer. I have the shopping mall 5 minutes from my new apartment, the Bahnhof 2 minutes away, a public swimming pool and many other amenities around me. What more can I ask for? However everytime we tell a Swiss that we bought an apartment in Wallisen, we get a very disapproving look. I asked around and apparently Wallisellen has a bad reputation in the real estate world. Will the happy Wallisellen residents please stand up?!!

Re: New to Wallisellen

Hi, I live in wallisellen since September. We have a 20month son and I find it a really nice place for kids. Locals consider wallisellen as densely populated ; I lough at their opinion, I am used to have a lot of people around and I don't find it 'busy' at all.
You can visit the gemeinde as said above for info on small kids activities . There is a house called Familien in Wallisellen where there is coffee meetings for moms w/ children 0-6, every mo & th at 14:00.
I take my kid to Spielgruppe twice a week, 9:00-13:00. Now I am looking for swimming pools . There are also some activities (like music playing) at the Catholic Church. I am still exploring as we are new here in Switzerland

Re: New to Wallisellen

We enjoy Wallisellen. Everything we need at our doorstep. Yes there is a lot of development going on but it doesn't bother or affect me negatively. And it's hardly densely populated! It's probably not the most sought after area in Zurich, but we can't all live (or afford to live!) in those areas. Every area has its pros and cons - it's all about what suits the individual.
