Les Contamines-Montjoie Playgrounds

Les Contamines-Montjoie has a great selection of playgrounds, all in the most beautiful mountain setting!


Espace de Loisirs des Loyers
Both a summer and winter destination (an outdoor ice-skating rink is constructed for the winter ski season here), the recently renovated Espace de Loisirs des Loyers (1600 m2) is located close to the centre of town in Les Contamines-Montjoie. In addition to the playground in the warmer months you will find: pétanque, a skate-park . . .

Le Parc Patrice Dominguez (Parc de Loisirs des Pontets)

Le Parc Patrice Dominguez (formerly known as Parc de Loisirs des Pontets) is the largest leisure park in the Pays du Mont-Blanc. I shall write in more detail about the whole leisure park in a later post (a work in progress), but for now let’s concentrate on the playground area! Right next to the small pedalo lake, this is a great playground comprising: climbing frame, a small climbing wall, a slide, swings, a tyrolienne . . . You’ll need to watch small children closely, as the playground is right next to the water’s edge, but older children can play happily while their parents have a quiet drink over at the café/restaurant Le Chalet du Lac (you are still able to keep an eye on your offspring from here!).

Over the summer months, in the park, are the bouncy castles and trampolines (and mini-golf and more) run by Laurent, as part of Nash Games. Lots of fun here!

Aire de Jeux de l’Etape

It’s either a hike up the mountain or the Télécabine de la Gorge that will get you to this playground at altitude!  But what a splendid spot for a playground this is! Right next to the little lake (where babies and toddlers can paddle . . . and older children can swim, rent a pedalo or small pedal boat) and Hotel Restaurant Bar de l’Etape (more on our summer overnight treat here in a later post!), are two small play areas: a traditional playground and a wooden parcours. There are also lots of ROCKS to climb!
