The Parc Phoenix consists of higher selections of a set of gardens that are built around a huge pond where pelicans, swans, geese, ducks and turtles live freely. Other animals are protectively reared in the park. Numerous varieties of birds varying from crowned cranes, rheas, macaws, to the mammals such as wallabies, prairie dogs, otters, porcupines, etc. are bred under intensive care. The gardens are landscaped areas maintained for ornamental purposes through mixing with Mediterranean plants.
The recreation center was opened in February 1990, and is spotted at the southwestern edge of Nice in the l'arenas area, and along the Promenade des Anglais. The recreation center has an internal waterway constructed as an inclusion. The recreation center is isolated into a few zones, for example a tropical zone, a Mediterranean arrangement, and ranges preserved for creatures. The recreation center comprises a substantial nursery with a huge pool and hosting creatures, for example pelicans, swans, ducks and turtles. Different delicate creatures are likewise protectively bred in the recreation center.
- The nursery section in the recreation center is organized and spread over a region of 7,000 square metres and is a multistory attaining a height of 25 metres. It is one of the biggest nurseries in Europe and is separated into seven zones.

Visited Parc Phoenix earlier this year with my wife and twin boys. Enjoyed it so much we have visited again this time with my in laws. The park is in immaculate state of maintenance and the animals seem happy and well cared for. Not expensive at all €5 per adult and my 2 year old twin boys got I free. Will be back again
Lovely park with beautiful views. Good place for a quiet outing with the family. Lots of animals to see including tortoises, goats, porcupines and otters. I wouldn't call this a big zoo but there are a nice assortment of animals you and the kids will enjoy. The botanical gardens are a marvel to behold. Come with your camera's ready for some beautiful shots. There's a rest area to relax your feet and have a drink of something cool as well. There is also a picnic area with a playground for the kids. If you're going in summer try to plan your trip for the later part of the day as it is open and it gets quite sunny in Nice. Entry is five euros per person.children under 12 go free.
Windswept, rain sodden. Perhaps not the best time to go. The plus was that it was very empty. We stopped for a quick coffee in the outdoor area, luckily partly sheltered. Coffee was acceptable but nothing special. Then to the indoor area, housed within a huge greenhouse and separated into different climate zones. Not overly spectacular and the impression was of once these plants are in the ground they are left to their own devices.But perhaps that is the idea, to hint at the real abandonment of nature. Who knows. There are some flamingos in there and one wonders about their boredom and lack of flight room! There are also some ducks, alligators, tortoises etc. Given the weather we did very little exploring outside, which perhaps us why we left with a feeling of being somewhat underwhelmed.
this is a place to see! we had to waste a few hours between dropping our rental and our flight, so we decided to visit. it’s within walking distance from the airport and we had no trouble finding it. I’m going to clarify from the start that the only reason I rate it as a four star and not 4, is because there’s no facility to drop your bags for the visit. there’s also no luggage allowed. however, there is a coffe shop up the stairs, opposite the entrance, so my husband had to wait there for us, with all the bags. the park itself is quite nice, the animals there seem to be cared for, there are paths and trees and flowers and ponds to look at, everywhere. this park is a definitely a gem. the kids were fascinated by the snakes, especially since our visit coincided with their lunch. raw, dead mice, was on the menu in case you were wondering. I loved the black swans, the otters and the flamingoes. so yes, it’s really worth a visit even if you don’t have a flight to catch.
Nice place for picnic, it’s a park with exotic plants and flowers! You will have good time in nice day !
