  • I appreciate the situation of the Park at two steps from the beach and the beautiful castle which can be also visited. What is regrettable is that despite the presence of baskets in garbage, we find debris where it shouldn't be!

  • This place is elegant, clean well maintained, the lawns are green when there is a heat wave! Very friendly with children

  • Parc Borély is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parks of Marseille. Located close to the horse track, you can access it by the sea or by the adjacent streets of the 8th district. The Borély villa is beautiful and just be upgraded by the Town Hall (finally!). You go to stroll, for reading, for a picnic, play football, for cycling; In short, to make you happy. Attention, on weekends, the Park is full of world! If you want to spend the day, arrive in the morning to get a spot in the shade (and beware, the Sun turns, with or without pastis :))

  • There is a great cafe in the park with good food and really friendly staff. It's situated near the centre overlooking the lake, so lovely views. It rained so I spent some good time there! Nice park to walk around with pretty fountains and flowers.
  • Absolutely fantastic during the Mondial la Marseillaise à Pétanque. A brilliant space for the competition for everyone to enjoy. One major problem at this time is however the lack of toilet facilities. Maybe next year will be better prepared. Thank you to the park for a great time.
  • Great place to do some sports, have a picnic and enjoy a beautiful day. A relaxing place.
  • Great park - Marseille slightly lacks in good parks, so this one can therefore get quite busy. There are some good attractions for the kids, funny old tree roots, wildlife, fun pedal vehicles available for hire. Definitely worth it.
  • It is nice place to spend time in Weekend. Have picnic with friends and do many other activity! Inside the park have beautiful lake, flowers garden and some animals too!

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
