"At the corner of a pond, in the shade of an old farmhouse or in the middle of a meadow, as of this summer a new place in Grand-Bornand will invite young and old to take the time to be together. Source of knowledge and creation, source of life and transmission, it is quite natural that this place is called "La Source". As the seasons go by, the themes will change but the message remains the same: listen to the mountains and let them guide us towards unexplored paths. "

Find fun and offbeat outdoor play areas: the play tree, the book beehives and the educational garden, the parent-powered merry-go-round, the giant Sonnaille... and inside: the café and its Bô'Bar, La Grange aux Etoiles, the workshop rooms, La vache cinétique.

La Source is designed to welcome all kinds of visitors (children, parents, individuals, groups, schools, etc.). A specific annual programme will enrich the place to make it evolve and live.
