Jardin des Cimes in Plateau d’Assy
This is not a conventional playground – and neither is it free (as you have to pay an entrance fee to enter the gardens) . . . but I’ve included it in this Passy Playgrounds article, as you can’t find many playgrounds with such an incredible view of 🏔 the Mont-Blanc massif . . . These wooden structures at 🌷 Le Jardin des Cimes in Plateau d’Assy are called « les Phonèmes »; as well as structures to climb, they provide good shade on a ☀️ sunny day for a picnic!

Aire de Jeux de Chedde-Passy
In Chedde, near the school, is a pleasant, enclosed playground . . . we happened across it quite by chance one day! There is ample parking right next to it! A perfect place to stop off at en-route to Super-U / Métro shopping!

Aire de Jeux du Quartier des Nids – upcoming !
Lac de Passy playgrounds
💦 Lac de Passy is, in effect, a large playground all year round (see here for 💦 MBFF Lac de Passy article / 🍁 Lac de Passy in autumn article), but in the ☀️ summertime it truly turns into a giant playground with: 🏖 a giant sand-pit (ie the beach!), 🌳 an accrobranches ®, 🏰 bouncy castles, ⛳️ mini-golf, 🚣♀️ electric boats & pedalos to rent, 💦 wibit softplay on the water, a fitness track in the woods . . .
And, all year-round, there is a fabulous sand-based playground near the beach-end of the lake, and various wooden climbing structures (and a slide) dotted around the lake too . . .
