    Located between the districts of Saint-Loup, Saint-Marcel and Mont de Carpiagne, the Parc des Bruyères was designed on a 101-hectare property, purchased by the city in 1980. On the edge of the urban area, it occupies both sides of the Evêque valley and constitutes a green hinge between the eastern districts and the calanques. Its relief is characteristic by its altitude variations ranging between 120 and 570 meters. Its endemic vegetation is made up of remarkable shrub species (rockrose, arbutus...) and in particular, the Erica arborea heather which inspired the name of the site. Very popular with hikers and excursionists, it offers a starting point in the massif of Saint-Cyr, as well as a cultural stroll to discover ancient vestiges (lime kilns, olive tree cultivation terraces, ancient sheepfolds...). In 2006, the municipality joined forces with the Conseil Général and other site managers to inform users about fire hazards and the opening of reception areas in the massifs: a single telephone number to find out everything from July 1 to September 9: 0811 20 13 13 (cost of a local call).
