  • At the end of Avenue Jean Médecin into Rue Masséna is where you’ll find this wonderful people’s park. The tramway runs through the square right past the park. We sat in the park some part of every day...  more »
  • Since the renewal of the promenade du Paillon, this is a blessing for all who wants to stroll around in Nice. The children can enjoy the beautiful fountains and the grandparents of the shade of the trees. It is a breath of fresh air in Nice all that green and toys for the children in conjunction with the fountains in the summer but also in winter and spring masses of people. Really worth it!

  • A beautiful walk very close to the city's main square. Water features and greenery make it special. Basically a series of parks that are followed for a few kilometres, in the evening, the water is illuminated with the colors of the French flag, making all of its own. During the day, the wide spaces invite you to picnic. A very comfortable clothing is recommended.

  • 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!
