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.
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.
Where to find deckchairs?
L'union fait le jeu
A range of activities and games are organised in the parks by young girls supervised by the social outreach workers of the youth service.
In addition to the provision of deckchairs, a number of activities are organised:
- free distribution of apples;
- livres nomades: the aim of this campaign is to offer the public second-hand books. The books are handed on between readers and are collected again at specific points;
- Urban golf course stretching 4 km;
- Itinerant games libraries.

Youth at work
The deckchairs are managed by young people under the supervision of the Youth Service. They are also tasked with providing people with information, keeping the deckchair areas clean and helping with a range of events.
