Guess what? Sallanches is the latest commune to be getting its very own 🛴 PUMPTRACK! It will be a giant pumptrack, and it will be located right next to the skatepark!

If you pass by the skatepark, you can see that the construction is coming along well . . . photos to come!


On some beautiful ☀️ sunny days (and even on some not-so-sunny ones), we find ourselves down at the 🛹🛴 Sallanches skatepark, as it is a short 20mins walk for us!

The skatepark is constantly re-painted with fabulous designs, and there is lots of space for 🛹 skateboards, 🛴 scooters and 🚴‍♀️ BMX bikes. I’m always pleasantly surprised by the range of ages present – little ones on small bikes and scooters, teenagers, young adults . . .  This does mean, of course, that one needs to be especially vigilant with little ones, but I enjoy seeing such a range of ages hanging out together!

And there is also plenty of green space for parents to sit and keep a watchful eye on youngsters, or there are picnic tables in the shade and benches too.

The bowl was recently re-painted and my boys have a lot of fun just running around in here (when there are no bikes speeding by!) . . . best to wear worn clothes!
