Fontvieille Park and the Princess Grace Rose Garden

Featuring a small lake bordered by palms and olive trees, and laid out over almost four hectares, this charming green space in the Fontvieille district is where you will discover many over-sized contemporary sculptures. The nearby Princess Grace Rose Garden is an oasis of calm and serenity where the scent of some 4,000 roses perfumes the air.

CAUTION :

In the run up to the 30th anniversary of the Princess Grace Rose Garden in Fontvieille, the Department of Urban Amenities (DAU) has started a major project to redesign this floral area, which will be enlarged by around 1,500 m2.

These changes will make it necessary to close the Rose Garden for almost a year, until june 2014.
