Megève town centre has a couple of playgrounds to keep your little ones entertained . . . In addition, a short walk during the summer months will take you take you to another play area located in the middle of 💦 nature . . . AND there is now an aire de jeux panoramique at the top of the 🚡 Télécabine du Jaillet!

Aire d’Activités du Petit Arly

This is a 🌈 NEW playground in Megève (the previous Aire de Jeux du Paddock playground was moved across the road, and was totally re-built with new amenities, as the new Novotel was built with a landscaped garden on the previous site).

The new playground is ample (1400 m2), caters for all ages (from 1 to 14 years) . . . / amenities: a dry river, a mineral garden, 4 Japanese bridges, swings, climbing structures, NEW – a skatepark / it is located in a great spot, with some shade, and everyone should find something to their liking! Being near the 💦 Palais des Sports, it is a great place to unwind or have a snack after a swimming or ice-skating session at the sports centre!

[ good to know – on Friday mornings, 🍏 Megève’s market is just across the road; a good place to buy a snack or a picnic lunch! ]

address: route du Palais des Sports, Le Paddock, 74120, Megève;

Aire de Jeux rue du Beausoleil 

Located in a 🏡 quiet residential spot, this little playground on rue du Beausoleil is a perfect spot for small children. There is free parking, a 🚾 and 🍏 picnic table, and little ones will be delighted to “drive” the 4×4!

Aire de Jeux Panormique du Téléphérique du Jaillet (Jaillet, Les Portes du Mont-Blanc)

A new initiative for summer 2019, is the aire de jeux set up at the top of the 🚡 Télécabine du Jaillet. A great way to encourage children to have a hike at altitude!

MBFF visited (courtesy of Les Portes du Mont-Blanc) in summer 2021, and the boys LOVED it ! Read all about our experience in separate MBFF article here.

Lac de Javen

A hike to 💦 Lac de Javen makes for a lovely family walk (see here for directions; minimum walking time 30mins, depending on departure point), and the children will be excited with what’s on offer once they arrive! There is a small playground on-site (some requisitioned McDonalds play equipment!), a tadpole and newt pond, and over the summer holidays you’ll find some extra equipment: acrobungy, trampolining . . . (see here).

There is also a restaurant here, Le Restaurant du Lac de Javen, and 🎣 fishing is possible. You must hire fishing equipment on-site and pay for your catch at the end of your session (popular with families) and on some days you can BBQ your catch!

good to know: you can drive all the way to the lake if you have mobilité réduite persons, but otherwise it is a short 15mins walk from the nearest car park;

address: Lac de Javen, chemin de la Rée, 74120, Megève;
