New holiday season Sports Village opens at Port Hercule

The Mairie de Monaco on Friday officially opened the inaugural Sports Village in Monaco, and it looks like it’s going to be a big hit with the kids.

On Friday afternoon, Deputy Mayor Camille Svara, together with Sports Establishments Delegate Jacques Pastor, and Arnaud Giusti, Head of the Municipal Sports and Associations Department, officially declared the Sports Village open on the South Dock of Port Hercule.

The vast area features fun sporting activities and is a first in the Principality, following the closure of the annual ice skating rink.

The Sports Village now complements the ‘Rainier III, Passionate Prince’ Christmas Village which opened by Prince Albert and Princess Charlene on Thursday 7th December.

It is designed for sports enthusiasts aged three and over, and features several obstacle courses, a treetop adventure, climbing and a 180-meter-long zip line to fly over the Port of Monaco.
