On some beautiful sunny afternoons this spring, we have found ourselves down at the Sallanches skatepark!
I must admit to having been somewhat ignorant towards to our local skatepark, and so I was pleasantly surprised with the discovery! It has been recently renovated, and there is lots of space for skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes. I was also 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! There are picnic tables in the shade and benches too. Bring a football and you can have a kick about on the football pitch right next to the skatepark!
There is plenty of space to park, and the skatepark is located near the bike route from Sallanches to St Martin and les Lacs des Ilettes.
*The skatepark de Sallanches even has its own Facebook page!*
rue de l’hôpital
Parking: plenty of parking just next to the skatepark
*The skatepark is located just behind the Sallanches hospital (could be handy, though hopefully not!)*
