Promenade du Paillon, Nice, France
Three years in the making, the imaginative Promenade du Paillon opened on 26th October 2013 on the site of a former bus station. It features water mirrors, ranks of fountains, inventive wooden playgrounds in the shape of sea animals, eclectic sculptures and many trees. The 12-hectare park snakes 1.2 km through the city from the Nice National Theatre down to the Med, via the Place Massena.
