Hoover your Car and Play

This playground is just off of Route de Meyrin, a four lane road through Geneva with trams whizzing by. It only has one purpose - to occupy your children in safety while you wash and vacuum the car. I admire the owner for providing these facilities.

Sailing Boat in Genthod

For the first time it was one of our children who led us to this playground - she 'discovered' it on a school trip! 
Genthod is a very well to do village of many châteaux and, of course, it has an immaculate and well appointed park. Play structures include a sailing boat, an arial runway, a sandpit and various wooden climbing frames.
It's a short walk from this park to the lake side where you can have a wee paddle. Go down the hill, past the train station and you're there. I think you are really meant to land here on your yacht and head to Le Creux-de-Gentold for your filet de perches... but we just stopped for ice-cream.
