Challandes Park


The Challandes Park is a small zoo created in 1991 in Bellevue in the canton of Geneva by Pierre Chalandes. In 1974, Pierre Challandes took over aviaries at Vernier and populated them with birds and then acquired other animals later. Due to lack of space, the animals were finally transferred in 1989 to their current location. Since 1991, an association composed of several thousand members has been managing its operations.

Challandes Park is located in the centre of the only runway at Geneva International Airport a few hundred metres before it. It is therefore necessary to deal with the deafening noise of low-level aircraft during the landing phase every 5 minutes.
