Les Contamines-Montjoie PLAYGROUNDS

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

Espace de Loisirs des Loyers

Both a summer and winter destination (an outdoor ice-skating rink is constructed for the winter season here), the recently renovated 🌈 Espace de Loisirs des Loyers (1600m2) is located close the centre of town.

In addition to the playground, in the warmer months you will find: a pumptrack and skatepark, pétanque, and picnic tables.

BRAND NEW for July 2019, Les Contamines-Montjoie was equipped with its own 🚵‍♀️ pumptrack in the Zone de Loisirs des Loyers. There is a parcours bleu and a parcours rouge.

The pumptrack and playground are located next to the lovely Sentier de Découverte, an annotated pathway along the river, where you can learn all about the history, patrimoine and nature of the fabulous Les Contamines -Montjoie . . .

❄️ and for the winter season, an ice-skating rink . . .

Le Parc de Loisirs des Pontet

Le Parc de Loisirs des Pontet is the 🌈 largest leisure park au Pays du Mont-Blanc.

Right next to the small pedalo lake, there is a great newly-renovated playground. 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 and 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 Mountain 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 (summer months only for this playground!) that will get you to this playground at altitude! But what a splendid spot for a playground this is, and it was entirely RENOVATED for the summer 2020, replete now with watergames and a chill-out zone! 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, are two small play areas: a traditional playground and a wooden parcours. There are also lots of ROCKS to climb!
