Just behind the hospital and the Collège de Verney, and next to the autoroute, Sallanches has its own 🛴 pumptrack and 🛹🛴skatepark.

It’s a popular spot for youngsters to head, either en famille or as they get older on their own.

Sallanches is the latest commune to get its very own 🛴 PUMPTRACK!

The 🛹🛴 skatepark is just next door . . .

It is regularly re-painted with fabulous designs, and there are all sorts of features, including a bowl.

Kids can head down with 🛹 skateboards, 🛴 scooters and 🚴‍♀️ BMX bikes.

I’m always pleasantly surprised by the range of ages present – little ones on small bikes and scooters, teenagers and young adults on skateboards, scooters and bikes . . .  this does mean, of course, that one needs to be especially vigilant with little ones.

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