  • A long driveway with water games leads to a museum located at the other entrance to the Park. Visit the Museum with furnishings, ornaments, clothing examples in use, in various historical periods, in Marseille in particular is in France in General. Frequented by athletes who train and families for a day out.

  • Choose the entry side Castle for not paying the parking, it's a little sad as input (a lot of gravel, very few greenery, a bit of lawn fountain but not very flowery (visited in September) must walk a little to fall on a 'pond' with) small boats, some ducks and a lot of coypu which animate places, a few nice trees, a small bridge by, a sculpture by here... We have a bit of our hunger (botanical and Japanese garden are the ones initially paying damage)

  • 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.
  • Nice parc. A little bit too crowded on Sundays
  • Very nice park with a wide alley and not too crowded. It is far from the center of Marseille and you will need a car if you want to visit it.
  • Bring carrots for the nutria! A pretty park with friendly wildlife

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.
