Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc PLAYGROUNDS

There are ūüĆą several playgrounds in Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc¬†(and its environs) to keep your little ones entertained . . .


Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc centre

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 ūüĆ≥¬†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 ūüŹĒ¬†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 ūüÖŅÔłŹ 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 ūü•ó La Galeta restaurant!

Le Bettex & Mont d’Arbois

Le Bettex summer playground

ūüö° Le Bettex arrival station t√©l√©cabine¬†has a playground . . . but don’t expect to see it in the ‚ĚĄÔłŹ wintertime, as it is dismantled to make way for the ski installations! You can get to this playground by driving or by taking the t√©l√©cabine from Saint-Gervais.

Mont d’Arbois – parcours ninja

NEW for summer 2021 is ūüĆą 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!

ūüŹĒ¬†Plateau de la Croix –¬†we’ve not yet visited this playground, but perhaps a family walk will soon take us this way?
