There are several playgrounds in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains and its environs to keep your little ones entertained.
Jardin du Mont Blanc
St Gervais 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-located benches to admire the mountain views. The playground has as a theme Le Tramway du Montblanc, 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!
Address: Jardin du Mont Blanc, Avenue du Mont Paccard, 74170, Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
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!
