“Toilets need an upgrade”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Lovely park to wander round, there is a botanical garden, boating lake, rose garden and plenty of places to sit and take in the views. But the loos were awful and should be avoided. You can even watch the horse racing at the adjoining track.

“One of the more civilized, pleasant places in Marseille”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

One of the more civilized, pleasant places in Marseille, this is a park where locals come to relax and get a sense of space. It is a short walk from the sea, and close to Pointe Rouge. If you are a local, this is a great place to unwind. But if you are a visitor (especially one from a green city), this park may leave you underwhelmed. Nice building though.

“A wonderful place to spend a summer day with your family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We spent 3 weeks in the septieme and visited all the surroundings.
We rented our bikes just in front our house and we used them to reach all the sea side attractions.
You can spend all your day between Prado plages and Borely park, everybody will be satisfied, from the kids to the grownup
