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!

address: rue de l'hôpital, 74700, Sallanches 🅿 parking: plenty of parking just next to the skatepark;
