Parks and Gardens

in Marseille

Marseille enjoys a privileged location in an exceptional natural environment: between sea, hills and Calanques. These natural borders, with the sea to the west and the hills in the crown, have contributed to the emergence and creation of original and unusual sites and landscapes such as the Calanques National Park.
Half of Marseille’s territory is made up of natural areas with more than 700 hectares of parks, gardens and squares.

Some parks in Marseille have been built around the former homes of great Marseille families, such as the Parc Borely, the Parc Pastré or the Parc de la Maison Blanche.
There are also other majestic parks such as the Parc Longchamp or the Pharo garden.
