The city of Geneva boasts a grand total of over 85 playgrounds, which include great playing fields like those at the parc la Grange; parc Trembley and the Jardin Botanique, and all schools’ recreation grounds that remain open to everyone outside school hours and at weekends.
Bise or shine, they’re great places to make new friends and let the little munchkins burn off energy before heading back home. Not to mention the fact that they are completely free of charge!
