Overview

Inaugurated in 2001, the "26th Centennial Park" contains 26 sequoia trees representing the 26 century-old history of Marseille. At the park entrance, a large metal tree sculpture stands, symbolizing hope. Four themed gardens (Provencal, Oriental, African and Asian) are there to choose from, according to mood. On the way are fountains and gazebos with views of Notre-Dame de la Garde. Three playgrounds are set up for children to play and several areas for Pétanque players (similar to Bocce). For refreshments, a snack and drink bar is located inside the park. The Parc du 26ème Centenaire is the perfect place to relax or walk around with friends and family. A great place for jogging too. - P.Wicki
