Megève town centre has a couple of playgrounds to keep your little ones entertained, and a short walk during the summer months will take you take you to another play area located in the middle of nature . . .
Le Paddock du Palais des Sports
*NB – this playground is set to move across the road later in 2018, as there is a new hotel project in the development stages at the current site*
The playground near Megève’s Palais des Sports is ample, caters for all ages (from 1 to 14 years) and has great views of the mountains . . . This makes it a great spot to stop with the whole family, as everyone should find something to their liking! Being right next to 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! On Friday mornings, Megève’s market is just next door; a good place to buy a snack or a picnic lunch!

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 WC and picnic table and little ones will be delighted to “drive” the 4×4!
