Speaking of kids, they will definitely enjoy a visit to Schossbad Nieberhhein, considered one of the best swimming pools in the region.

In addition, there is a volleyball court and diving boards that your little ones will surely appreciate. Even more so they will appreciate the food served at the local cafe. If the pool complex is full, then you can always come to Volksbad, a huge pool for children from 3 years old (there is no pool for toddlers, however). The pool is extremely well maintained, so hundreds of people come to swim in it every day.
If you travel with kids, then Tiergarten Mönchengladbach is a must-have destination on your touristic route. Bears, goats, horses, turtles, parrots, peacocks, and even kangaroos can be seen here. Some animals can be fed, which will certainly appeal to your little ones. All animals are well-cared-for, which attracts crowds of visitors to the zoo all year round. The zoo is located in the Stadtpark, where you can also find a great playground for children.

Bowling Lounge MG is one more entertainment venue that your family and especially kids will appreciate.

There is also a picnic area and a horse riding center that your children will be delighted to visit. The park holds an annual festival called Fest am See (End of July), so if you end up here during that time of the year, make sure not to miss it.
Among other parks where a simple walk resembles a promenade through the Garden of Eden, Beller Park and Bunter Garten should be noted. In the former, you can play some tennis while your little ones are having fun at a well-equipped playground with all sorts of slides and swings.
