My MBFF boys headed off for some fun at Paradis des Praz at the weekend and it reminded me what a wonderful little hidden jewel it is. This natural playground is well-known to families living in the region, but perhaps not to those visiting.
Nestled in the woods in Les Praz, a short walk from the golf-course car park (or from Les Tines, in the opposite direction), a little stream runs through a spot that has been transformed into a small paradise for children; shallow water to paddle around in and splash about in. In addition, you will find on-site: a playground, a sandpit, slack-lines, pony rides in the summer, a small café for snacks.
Le Paradis des Praz can get quite busy during the summer months, but you can still find shade. You can walk with buggies through the woods from the car park in Les Praz, or even cycle. We highly recommend the use of push bikes/bikes for little ones who have a tendency to grumble when walking (but not when cycling!).
Le Paradis des Praz can also organise birthday parties!
