Saint-Gervais-les-Bains Playgrounds

There are several playgrounds in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains and its environs to keep your little ones entertained.

In Saint-Gervais-les-Bains:

Jardin du Mont-Blanc

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains town centre has a delightful, newly renovated playground to keep your little ones active and happy.  Located in the Jardin du Mont-Blanc, the landscaping around the playground is 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, and a climbing frame. *NEW ADDITION 2017: a snow-plough!*

Sporting Club Saint-Gervais

Just past the swimming pool, and next to the tennis courts and mini-golf, is another small playground for toddlers.  It is nestled behind a crèche and next to a little stream, and has plenty of shade for hot sunny days.  There are slides and a little sand-pit, so bring your buckets & spades and diggers & dump trucks!
