Jardin Albert 1er

Connecting Place Masséna to the Promenade des Anglais, the Albert I Garden is a huge three-hectare park in the heart of Nice, which hosts many cultural events throughout the year.

Created in 1852, the Albert I Garden is one of the oldest in the city of Nice. Lawns, fountains, works of art and plant species delight the people of Nice and holidaymakers who love to sit here to enjoy some sunbathing. At its southern entrance, a huge statue has stood since 1896 on which a winged Victory is perched, celebrating the accession of the County of Nice to France. Inside the park, many other monuments have been erected over the years. Among the most notable, the magnificent Bandstand, the incredible Arc de Venet 115º5, 19 metres in height, and the enchanting Fountain of the Three Graces.
Today, the Albert I Garden hosts many cultural events at the very heart of the park or the Théâtre de Verdure, inaugurated in 1946. The Book Festival, the Côte d'Azur Garden Festival and many concerts take place there throughout the year. But the most sought-after event is the Nice Jazz Festival which, after spending its early years in the garden of Cimiez, has found a special place in this park in the city centre since 2011.
