As Europe's largest botanical garden at 7000 sq metres, the "Parc Phoenix" is a green and shady oasis of exotic vegetation. A giant greenhouse contains seven different tropical climates (with a suitably tropical temperature and humidity level).

There's a birdhouse with immensely wise owls, a petting zoo, an orchid garden, an aquarium and a lake with caimans and other creatures. There's a terrarium, a kiddie park, an orchid garden and a pleasing array of fountains. All told, there's 2500 plant species and the animal life is constantly being augmented.

Naturally, the Parc Phoenix is a great spot for kids; there are often school groups in the park. It's best to arrange a morning visit if possible as it's more peaceful. A visit to the Park Phoenix can easily be combined with a visit to the Asian Arts Museum (Musée des Arts Asiatiques which is within the park.

Opening Hours

The Parc Phoenix is open daily from 9.30am to 6.30pm, later in summer.


Admission is €5.10 for adults, €3 for juniors up to age 18 and free for kids under 12.
