Nice's NEW Promenade!! Renaming Nice's new city centre park

After a public competition, it has been announced that Nice’s Coulée Verte has officially been renamed the Promenade du Paillon.

The Coulée Verte, when finished, will be Nice’s new giant public garden, a strip of parkland running through the centre of the city between Nice old town and the centre. Its creation will certainly add value to local properties in Nice, as well as improving Nice’s green credentials. Take a look at our Nice blog for more on what this beautiful green space will bring to the city!

Coulée verte

The city launched a public competition to rename this garden and the winning name was revealed to be ‘Promenade du Paillon’, in reference to the once-mighty Paillon, a river that still runs beneath it.

Many names were put forward for this competition, including La Promenade des Niçois (since les Anglais already have theirs!), La Coulée des Lavandières (named for the laundresses that washed their clothes daily in the Paillon river) and Estopoganza (for Nice’s very ambition Mayor – Christian Estrosi who has done so much to ensure Nice continues to invest in improvements to the city!).

Coulée verte

The Promenade du Paillon is scheduled to be finished in September, though from the looks of things at the moment (it currently resembles a muddy pitt filled with bulldozers…) they are going to have to get their skates on, especially since the first half absolutely MUST be done by July 8th in time to host the Nice Jazz Festival! We are sure it will look beautiful when finished.

This new green space will add value to the properties around it, which is great news for those looking to sell property in Nice or to invest in the area! It will also make this part of the city centre a much more pleasant living space, so would be a lovely area to buy a property in Nice – look on our maps on the home page and do a search on Nice old town, Port to Garibaldi or Nice centre properties.
