This place has some cafes around the entrance and on some days vendors with ice creams.

The park itself is decently maintained. For Marseille this is one of the few green spots in the whole city. There is a sense of calm here too that avoids the busy small streets of the city. While not much more than a few photo ops this park can be fit into a day tour schedule to provide a good place for some lunch or a quick refreshing drink at one of the cafes.

This is a huge park, close to the Corniche and the Med. This is a place where people enjoy to go for a stroll, run or simply rest. Children will love it. You can find a place to sit or even go for a drink. This is simply the place where the Marseillais go if they want to get some fresh air and be in a large, natural site to enjoy the sun (since the city is notoriously known as the sunniest place in France.)

Close to the sea, a happy surprise to have such a calm oasis close to the busy streets. A must go for every one. Just go to the little lake, order a "rosé" and enjoy the sweet idleness

Parc seemed to be well kept and was worth seeing. Small lakes with floating islands and some unusual sculptures

This is a big parc with lakes, botanic gardens, a castle and many birds. You may enjoy the mostly quiet atmosphere within the usually busy and loud city of Marseille. The parc offers many playgrounds for kids. As the parc is located close to the sea, you have a great view from several locations to sit and enjoy especially the sunsets.
