After a three year long wait the ‘Coulée Verte’, now known as the ‘Promenade du Paillon’, was officially inaugurated last weekend. Since the demolition of the ‘Gare Routière Côte d’Azur’ in 2011 and the ‘Parking du Paillon’ just last year, the area has been completely transformed into a beautiful open walkway and gardens, with a children’s play area and stunning fountains. The €40 million project, funded by the local council and other regional organizations has been designed to give Nice a more environmentally-friendly image. The new Promenade which stretches from the ‘Théâtre de Verdure’ all the way along to ‘Théâtre National de Nice’ was inaugurated by the mayor on Saturday 26th October. The celebrations started in Place Massena with live music, and the park was opened to the public at 10am. 15000 people attended the inauguration which was made up of a full day of events, such as a film screening and a spectacular water display with the new fountains.
