  • Park with age-old olive trees, little known, except Niçois is coming to walk their dogs and their young children. You can enter arenas, overhanging the Roman ruins and enjoy the Matisse Museum.

  • The Park is fairly large but unimpressive. There are playgrounds and ball fields. I was disappointed by the arenas that are not too highlighted

  • Well worth a trip up to the park, particularly if there is a local fete on. Rows of ancient Olive trees to picnic under, the Matisse museum to explore as well as the Cathedral and ancient ruins. A bit out of town but worth taking a bus to. Too far to walk though particularly for the older, unfit or short of time, as its deceptively far and a long steady-gradient climb up Blvd de Cimiez.
  • Loved the peaceful atmosphere, the pétanque players, the old-fashioned carousel and the busts of some of the greatest jazz players of yesteryear.
  • Nice park and some views towards the city. Not much to do there though, as the museum seemed pointless.
  • Definitely a good place to visit. The church is beautiful!
  • Nice park full of olive trees!
