This lovely parc (yes, also in winter it was a pleasant place!) was near my Hôtel and I walked through it whenever I went to the Lake and Bridge du Mont Blanc.
Near that Pont were lots of birds and each day I tried to feed them some of my cookies but there were soooo many.......and the ships and boats were also covered up for winter.....
The Pont du Mont Blanc is a long swinging bridge at Lake Geneva. From here you can have a nice view on Geneva and its fountain.
