  • Do not expect make a romantic walk alone in the world. It's full, but it is also a real pleasure to see small play in the "beasts" wooden dotting the lawns. Water games are also nice when it's hot. It is rare to leave with the children to dry clothes...

  • A great park for kids! Lots of fun activities taking place there. Also good for people watching and taking some nice pictures, and a well-deserved break after visiting the city.
  • On my short experience one of the best spaces in Nice. Great for families, you can see children enjoying themselves, people jogging, relaxing, street artists performing, there's everything here.
  • set in the beauty of Nice, this fun fountain is a must see. In the heat of the day this is a nice release. Many tourist play in the water or try to pose for pictures and get shot with water. Fun stop to cool down and have a laugh
  • Nice area! Fountains are fun :)
  • The newly opened (Nov 2013) Promenade du Paillon adjacent to the wonderfully revamped Place Massena completes a 10 year transformation of the city. Gone is the ugly multi-storey car-park, MacDonald's drive through and bus station which used to obscure the surrounding Belle Epoque buildings and blight the city centre. Now the vista has opened up with a 1.2km ribbon park beginning with a spectacularly and enchanting 3000m2 fountain garden that children and adults frolic through and get COMPLETELY drenched in, to beautiful olive groves peppered with carved wooden climbing frames for young children. It is constantly policed and very family friendly. The change in character of this area is amazing. Surely one of the best urban parks in the world. Bravo, Nice!
