We think that it is important for you to have a calm place to rest and we also recommend you regularly leave the hospital to clear your head. We suggest to you some places to discover during visits with the diseased child’s brothers and sisters.

There are two large parks near the hospital :


The parc des Bastions (10-15 min. to walk or tram 12 direction Moillesulaz, stop Place Neuve) with an outdoor skating ring in winter and a playground.

On the last ramparts of the old part of the town, next to the parc des Bastions, there is a playground for children on the promenade de la Treille.

The parc Bertrand (10-15 min. to walk) in the avenue Peschier with playground and wading pool.
There are also several playgrounds in the vicinity of the hospital to be found on the website of the city of Geneva:
