  • A small patch of green in the heart of Aix-en-Provence. Ideally located between the faculties and the cours Mirabeau, we appreciate if there to take a breath of fresh air, sit on a bench and enjoy to see greenery. Ideal for sunbathing not far from home, read or make a picnic. It should, however, upgrade it, off trees and lawn there is not truly of parterres of flowers and plants. I recommend not to get there late in the evening or at night too much close to universities. The Park attracts students who come here to get drunk with packs of beers and whiskies indeed and the place is known for being dark, the meeting point of the dealers on the sly. I've seen a few "discrete" transactions from hand to hand. In addition, I remember that summer while we were with a friend sitting on a bench in the Park, a high school student asked us if we were selling grass.

  • Perfect for a short visit, this park is integrated in a disjointed architecture environment. However, it has the merit of offering a. Playground for young children. It also allows to admire the game of passionate bowlers.

  • unmatched disparate architectural and precarious constructions without effort to conceal the note of presentation of the Park, placed at its entrance, is significant of administrative efficiency: only mentioned the date of acquisition by the municipality 1929 and the date of the realization of the 1935 Park, 6 years! No development, no description of the places of its history, of its contents, works it contains we discover successively, one plate in tribute to the brave pioneers Aachen founding of Quebec and French, interesting America yet ... An original stone fountain, has two jets of water, on each side, which feed a former pool, very badly maintained a beautiful bust of Frédéric Mistral, in his full youth, on a column whose base is delicately carved on its 4 faces, representing monuments, passed over in silence.

  • Lovely park with beautiful grass and a large fountain. A great place to relax in the nature while being in the center of town at the same time! A great place to bring children as well. There is also a small fenced in area for children to play. Great place for the entire family, or just to get out for some fresh air. I recommend it!
  • A nice little walk through a 4 acre City center Park.. good place to have a quiet picknick.
  • the playground is bigger now (children can run and parents can make pique-nique in the "lawn". Hope that grass will grow till summer 😂)
  • First class park for second class afternoons. Young people doing questionable things abound.
  • Great place for a picnic; if you happen to enter near the boules courts, walk further and to the left to find the grass.
