This park is a real gem if you're at a loose end trying to find an activity for the kids to do. Park Phoenix is an ecological park located in the western suburbs of Nice opposite Nice airport. Park Phoenix is probably best suited to smaller children as it provides a shaded area where they can wander around and feed animals, walk through the tropical rain forest, see the Wallaby's, etc. If you get a hot day in the height of summer then walking around this park with its shaded greenery is perfect. The lake with the ducks and swans is very nice.
