Promenade du Paillon, Nice, France Photos

Promenade du Paillon in Nice, is a long north-south linear park extending from the sea to the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art. The broad pathway gives views of a wide variety of greenery as well as the ornate, luxury apartment buildings situated along the streets on either side of the park. The Promenade contains a vintage carousel & a children's play area with wooden animal figures for climbing & other activities. A highlight is the plaza with multiple hidden fountains which spout water unpredictably.
