Parc Phoenix, Nice Reviews
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.
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.
I love this place, cheap entry. Was concerned about the parrots etc. They were really struggling with the heat. Maybe more shade is required?. And also rat control. The numbers running around was quite high.
Nice botanical gardens with birds and small mammals in nice surroundings ideal for killing time or a picnic only €5 per adult well worth it
It is a great place to take your kids. They do have a few animals but I would not call it a zoo. I liked the greenhouse. The Flamingos caught me by surprise. I loved the collection of orchids.
