Albert 1st Garden

Local name: Jardin Albert 1er

The Albert I Garden is an oasis of greenery located on the promenade in Nice. It was founded in 1914. Palms and Mediterranean shrubs dominate his painting. The central part is occupied by a vast meadow, on which the monumental Arc de Venet was erected in 1988.

The garden is an expression of the relationships and friendships that prevailed between France and Great Britain at the beginning of the 20th century. It was opened by the King of Belgium Albert I who belonged to the Hanoverian dynasty, which also ruled in England. It is now one of the favorite resting places within the very center of Nice.

The garden is densely wooded, which gives a refreshing shade on hot days. Numerous benches were erected under the palm trees. There are picnic spots designated on lawns. The park is cut with a network of walking and cycling paths.
