Perched high on the hills of Bougy-Villars (VD) and bedecked with the most spectacular views over lac Léman & Mont Blanc, the Parc Pré Vert Signal de Bougy is the stuff of family dreams.
It is the place we go to for a fun day-out with friends, a game of mini golf or a visit to the adorable farm animals (the baby goats and piglets are Little Miss Cutie’s favourites!) not to mention all the wonderful afternoons we have spent in the large playground, running, climbing & swinging until the sky turns red around the peaks below.
The Parc Pré Vert Signal de Bougy has reopened for the 2014 season on the 15th of February 2014 and they have a series of exciting kids workshops in store as well as free family shows and the Festival Lilibiggs coming up on the 8th-9th of June 2014.
As most of the attractions are outdoors, the park is best enjoyed on a nice day – rainy days are a bit trickier although there is a great family restaurant, self-service style, that was entirely renovated a couple of years ago. When the sun is out, the day simply isn’t long enough to do everything: you can play, walk in the woods, ride your bicycles, play golf at the Golf Parc or climb trees at the Parc Aventure right next door.
