One of the most interesting webcams of Nice, which allows you to see in real time a very popular holiday destination for tourists and locals – Promenade du Paillon. This is the name of the new city park, which was opened in late October 2013. The park does not accidentally have an elongated shape and a long extent – about 1200 meters. Once in this place was the riverbed of the River Paillon, which in the early 70s of the last century completely “went underground.” The total length of the river, the source of which is located in the Maritime Alps, is about 36 km, i.е. only a small part of it is located in the city. Promenade du Paillon became the largest green zone in Nice, because in a city with such a good climate until the opening of the new place of rest there were not so many parks, squares and generally green areas. The construction of the Promenade du Paillon in the western part of the old city lasted only about two years, and the official opening became a very significant event for the whole region.
The total area of the Promenade du Paillon, which can be seen with this panoramic web camera in Nice, is 12 hectares. The entire green zone, often called the “Green Stream” stretches from the National Theater of Nice directly to the beach. At the same time the Promenade du Paillon can be divided into several parts. In the first part of the park area, where once was the old city fountain, now there is a large area, a distinctive feature of which are dozens of water strings, bringing a slight coolness and freshness to all holidaymakers. Further during the walk you can find a huge lawn, on which you can walk. Nearby there is a square with a monument to André Messen – the famous marshal of the Napoleonic army and a native of the city of Nice. The most popular part of the Promenade du Paillon is the active recreation area with numerous slides, swings, play areas for children and original fountains.
Very interesting objects of the park are figures of marine life made of natural wood (red cedar) – dolphins, turtles, octopuses and even a huge skeleton of a whale, which is almost 40 meters in length. Since this live webcam Nice is panoramic, you will have to spend some time to see all the possible territory. The webcam slowly turns left and right, allowing you to see both the far side of the Promenade du Paillon, as well as the nearby, as well as the Mediterranean coast, near the southern border of the Promenade du Paillon. The location of the webcam is the famous four-star Hotel Boscolo Plaza. In the evenings, the modern illumination is switched on at the Promenade du Paillon, which makes this place of rest even more vivid and festive. At night, for security reasons, the Promenade du Paillon is closed to visitors. Enjoy your online webcam and rest in Nice!
