Opération chaises longues

Each summer, with Opération chaises longues (Operation Deck Chairs), deck chairs are put out for public use in Geneva’s parks. City residents are also invited to take part in a number of fun activities.

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

Along with the deck chairs, a range of activities are organized:

  • free apples are given out
  • outdoor barbecues
  • mobile books: this initiative aims to get so-called second-hand books out to the public; the books circulate among readers and are eventually returned to the cases set aside for that purpose
  • various summer events
