Parc Phoenix

To the west of Nice, the Parc Phoenix is a magnificent seven-hectare park where families love to meet up to explore many rare species of animals and plants which amaze children and their parents.

A real haven of peace at the heart of the Côte d'Azur, a visit to Parc Phoenix has, for more than 30 years, been one of the most popular family outings for the people of Nice and travellers. Spread over seven hectares, more than 2500 plant species across a score of gardens, which cohabit with 2,000 animals representing 70 different species. Among them, it is not uncommon to see marmosets, crocodiles, exotic birds or farm animals.
In the centre of the park, a huge greenhouse called the Diamant Vert [Green Diamond] can be found. A total of six tropical climates are recreated in this huge 7000 square metre space, 25 metres high, one of the largest in Europe. This whole marvellous little world is built around a central lake which invites you to log off and escape. Throughout the year, many events, educational activities and various nature-related exhibitions are on offer here. Nice's Parc Phoenix has been awarded the Famille Plus and Jardin Remarquable labels.
