Kids Play a Guide to Playgrounds on the French Riviera

Contributor blog post by Access Riviera:

I thought it was due time to update my previous blog post about playgrounds on the French Riviera. If you have children, the region has lots of options for playground fun. I have included mostly free public options.

…Continue reading here for playgrounds and where kids can play for free (or mostly) along the Côte d’Azur starting in Antibes and running all the way to Villeneuve Loubet. Here, is a super-cool map for family-friendly activities by Nice Matin.  You can search by area and type of activity. Thanks for pointing it out Access Riviera!

Family Fun in Provence and Côte d’Azur

Visiting the Var with kids?  My top 10 things to do by Susana Iwase Hanson of Provence-living.net. She shares ideas for kids and adults for exploring the Var and the nearby coastline.

The Alpilles (small Alps) are a little mountain range, which makes them perfect for family-friendly activities. Dotted with hiking trails the hills are suitable for all levels. There are canals to walk along and paths for biking. The Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles is a protected natural space, which includes vineyards, olive groves, herds of sheep and goats and lots to explore. Read: Provence Family Vacation Ideas for Holidays with Kids in the Alpilles.

Treasure hunts for kids on the French Riviera are a perfect idea for any time of year. What child doesn’t love a treasure hunt? I’m not talking about just geocaching either where you find the ‘cache’ by using GPS coordinates, but good old-fashioned treasure hunts using maps, clues and riddles to find answers to questions or a secret code word.

Kid-friendly translation:

Cour de récréation = playground

La piscine = swimming pool

Le balançoire = swing (swing set)

Le parc aquatique = water park

New Zealand born and raised, Rebecca moved permanently to the French Riviera when she fell in love with an Englishman working on a super yacht.

With 10+ years background in the travel industry, she left the rat race and founded Access Riviera after realising there was a lack of travel information in English for expats and tourists.

Access Riviera is her blog providing general travel advice regarding sightseeing, transport and festivals focusing on families and persons with reduced mobility mixed in with a healthy dose of posts about 'la vie en France' as an expat.

When not writing for her blog and collaborating with companies such as FlipKey, Lonely Planet Kids and Wanderant, Rebecca consults globally in tourism and media. She enjoys stand up paddleboarding on the Riviera coastline, and searching for the best tarte aux citron in the region.
