There are 🌈 several playgrounds in Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc (and its environs) to keep your little ones entertained . . .
Le Jardin du Mont-Blanc
Saint-Gervais-les-Bains town centre has a delightful, recently renovated playground to keep your little ones active and happy. Located in the 🌳 Jardin du Mont-Blanc, the landscaping around the playground is in itself lovely, with lots of grassy slopes, an old well and bandstand and some well-positioned benches to admire the 🏔 mountain views. The playground has as a theme Le Tramway du Mont-Blanc, and children can play at driving their own tram! There is also a netted swing, a swing for tiny ones, a small trampoline, a climbing frame and a snow-plough feature.
[ good to know: the 🅿️ 2KM3 multi-storey car park opposite was painted by a group of international street-artists, and is worth exploring! In the summer, just across the road from the playground is the ephemeral bar Esplanade 2KM3, and the excellent 🥗 La Galeta restaurant!
address: Jardin du Mont-Blanc, avenue du Mont Paccard, 74170, Saint-Gervais-les-Bains; 🅿️ parking: FREE in the multi-storey 2KM3 car park opposite;
Le Parc Thermal
🌳 Le Fayet’s Parc Thermal – has a lovely newly-renovated playground, with 💦 Les Thermes as a theme this time, which is outlined in a separate article (see here for more information);
Le Bettex & Mont d’Arbois
Le Bettex summer playground
🚡 Le Bettex arrival station télécabine has a playground . . . but don’t expect to see it in the ❄️ wintertime, as it is dismantled to make way for the ski installations! You can get to this playground by driving or by taking the télécabine from Saint-Gervais.
Mont d’Arbois – parcours ninja
NEW for summer 2021 is 🌈 the parcours ninja, a 70m long obstabcle course with stunning views of Mont-Blanc! We discovered this playground on a family hike from Le Bettex up to Mont d’Arbois, and my boys LOVED it!
St Nicolas de Véroce
St Nicolas de Véroce has a small playground with lovely views. It is located just behind the bibliothèque (library) and has FREE parking!
address: route de Saint-Nicolas-de-Veroce, Saint-Nicolas de Véroce, 74170, Saint-Gervais-les-Bains;
🏔 Plateau de la Croix – we’ve not yet visited this playground, but perhaps a family walk will soon take us this way?
[ good to know – Saint-Gervais-les-Bains Tourist Office has a special booklet available, with all the listings necessary for an active, fun holiday as a family / the booklet also has fun games for children! ]
