Steamgarden series

This series was shot in Jardin Albert 1er, Nice. This delightful public park in the city centre runs from Place Massena, linking the Promenade des Anglais to the old town of Vieux Nice. Developed during the late 1800’s, Jardin Albert 1er is one of Nice’s oldest public gardens; a large lawn in the centre is surrounded by palm trees, fragrant roses, carob trees, junipers as well as various plants from Japan, China, the Americas, Australia and the Himalayas.

It was recently revamped during the extensive renovations that took place on the Promenade du Paillon. Nice31 copyNice32 copyNice34 copyNice37 copyNice38 copyNice30_1 copyA refreshing mist / steam puffs up from the ground casting rainbows on sunny days.

Quieter than the nearby Promenade du Paillon, Jardin Albert 1er is popular with local workers enjoying a lunchtime snooze and leisurely strollers who’ve drifted in from the Promenade des Anglais. With ornamental fountains and beautiful flowers, it provides a tranquil haven for the Niçois to stroll and relax during their leisure time.
