Borely Park

Experience the rich floral aromas, formal arrangements and many secret corners of one of France’s most cherished gardens, an icon of Marseille.

Spend a day getting lost in the sprawling Parc Borély (Borély Park), a picturesque city garden that’s perfect for a relaxing walk, an afternoon of cultural activities or to watch the sun go down over the Mediterranean Sea. Explore the 42 acres (17 hectares) of park to find Château Borély and the historic E.M Heckel Botanic Garden.

Wander between the twin lawns that flank the western border of the park to find Château Borély and its tree lined façade. When built in the 18th century, the house was a country mansion for a wealthy local merchant. It was donated to the city during the century that followed and today, after extensive renovations and restorations, houses a fine arts museum. Discover the wide collection of fashion, textiles and pottery housed within the château before stopping by the café for refreshments. Browse a collection of artist books in the bookshop located within the château’s east wing.

Outside you’ll find the manicured, English-style gardens that wrap themselves around the lake. Follow the circuit walkway to visit the lake, or rent a bike to explore the longer trails. Bring some bread to feed the ducks and swans that live in the lake. Stop to smell the roses at the rose garden as you relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the park.

Children will love playing on the merry-go-round or racing miniature boats on the lake. Rent a go-cart for a thrilling experience.

Borély Park can be reached by bus from the city centre. Metered parking is available in the streets surround the park. There is no admission fee to the park however the botanic gardens and Château Borély each charge a small fee for entry.

In the end it was okay.
"When we first arrived they gave us an absolutely dirty and rundown room. The paint was peeling off the wall skirts, there was something sticky next to the bedside table, hair and stains on the bed, the shower was dirty, a socket was hanging out of the wall, curtains were hanging down... We asked ..."
