“Wonderful addition to Nice”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Anyone visiting Nice will now be able to enjoy a new promenade to stroll on. A wonderful addition to an already wonderful city. It's a river of green that stretches from the sea thru the center of the city separating the old city from the 'new' city. Lots of green, lots of trees, statues, gardens, play grounds, and a huge, wonderful dancing water fountain. It connects everything together. It's the best thing the city has done in ages.

“Greenery in the heart of Nice”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

The recently inaugurated Promenade du Paillon...Le Coulee Verte...is a gem of a place in the centre of Nice. The Paillon is the hidden river of Nice and this park is built over it. It starts from L'Esplanade de la Bourgada crosses Place Massena and continues into Jardin Albert 1 where one finds the Theatre de Verdure which is an open air amphitheatre and the Kiosque a' Musique. Along the Promenade one can see different monuments too....the statue of Andre Massena, the Triton Fountain, The bronze Tiger and the arch which symbolizes the Baie des Anges. There are also several botanical plants from the five continents. Several wooden structures are intended for the children to climb, jump, glide, do balancing and all sorts of physical exercise. These include a whale, a dolphin, a tortoise and an octopus.The highlght of the Promenade is 'Le Miroir d'Eau' a surface of 2800 sq metres from which 128 sprouts of water form like a dancing fountain. Really worth visiting!
