Free deck chairs in the parks

Every summer, the City of Geneva provides the public with free deckchairs in the city’s parks. It also organises a number of convivial social activities.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, deck chairs will not be made available to the public in the city’s parks this summer. Prevention projects will nevertheless be organised in the four areas concerned, with young people from the districts supervised by social outreach workers. “L'union fait le jeu” will, however, be maintained.
Des chaises longues au parc des Bastions

During the summer, hundreds of deck chairs are made available to the public in several parks around the city.

Offering a perfect means of relaxing, this operation offers local inhabitants the opportunity to meet one another, develops intergenerational ties and supports the integration of young people in the districts.
