La Ciotat has many green areas that invite you to relax, such as public gardens. The city is a resort where nature also owns its place.
Jardin de la ville - The Municipal Park
This garden has been completely regenerated.
15.000 meters square of green land enable all generations to gather and relax in the shades underneath the trees and plants. The bandstand gives this place a lovely rural vibe during summer nights.
It is open every day from July 1st to August 31st from 7am to 9.30pm and from September 1st to June 30th from 7am to 7.30pm.
La Bastide Marin
1943, Avenue Guillaume Dulac.
Bastide Marin is a place where natural, cultural and architectural heritage meet together. The mansion keeps its history, with marks of people who would live there, as well as charming places in and around it: the magical garden, the ethno-botanical garden, the vineyards, the olive trees, the apiary and the educational farm.
Bastide Marin is open on Wednesday from 1.30pm to 5pm and on Saturday from 9.30am to 12pm (closed in July and August).
Le Parc urbain sportif - The City Sport Park
La Voie douce - The Green Lane
Currently from the old city center to Avenue Guillaume Dulac (north part of the city) and later all the way to the train station.
On the remains of Bouches-du-Rhône’s old railway tracks, the “voie douce” (the green lane) has been created upon a rural theme and bonds the former two stations in La Ciotat together. It is a pedestrian and cycle lane on which a great and playful walk or ride to and from the city can be made.
Les jardins de l'espérance
Chemin des poissonniers.
The surface of this garden spreads over 7.000 meters square. The activities and concerns going on in this garden are all environment-oriented. Disabled people can easily access the garden too.
