The Parc Phoenix, on the outskirts of Nice, is spread over 7 hectares. You can find 2,500 species of plants, some reputed to be rare, are conserved in a Mediterranean setting. The 7,000m², 25 metre high tropical greenhouse is one of Europe's largest.
Designed as a place where people and nature can meet, there are around twenty gardens with their own "sounds".
As you visit the park, you will discover:
The astronomical garden: two billion years revealed by the fossil record;
The island of bygone days: plants which have survived for over 8 million years;
The bamboo plantation;
