On some beautiful ☀️ sunny days (and even on some not-so-sunny ones), we find ourselves down at the 🛹 🛴 Sallanches skatepark!
It was fairly recently renovated, and it 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. Bring a ⚽️ football and you can have a kick about on the football pitch right next to the skatepark!
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;
good to know: the skatepark is located near the 🚲 bike route from Sallanches to St Martin and 💦 Lacs des Ilettes.
