 Map

Prior to conversion, the site was used by the army as field maneuver. In 1906 and 1922, it housed the Colonial Exhibition in Marseilles. The gate at the entrance is the remnant of this period. Since then, the gardens are open to the public (since 1997) and the park annually hosts the Spring Fair and the International Fair of Marseille.

The Parc Chanot also hosts since 1954 the regional station France 3 Méditerranée, but access is restricted to France Télévisions staff.

Just meters from the headquarters of France 3, there is also the convention center where major cultural events in Marseille are held. Located close to the stadium Velodrome, it serves as parking for fans at matches of the footbal team Olympique Marseille or for any other events.

Nearby, you can also find the Prado Mall

Only 2 kilometers from Parc Chanot and easily accessible by foot, bike or trottinette, are the Prado beaches: Created in the 1970s to develop the untapped kilometers of coastline, the Prado Beaches are now a must-see for many people from Marseille and tourists. The subway construction at the time produced the necessary embankment for the 22 hectares of land taken from the sea. Finally, the Prado seaside park covers 26 hectares and 3.5 kilometers of coastline and is visited by more than 3.5 million visitors per year. It is the largest beach in Marseille, even if it is more like a succession of beaches over miles between the David beach (so named because of the eponymous statue), at the Vieille Chapelle beach. Each corner attracts a more or less different audience, but the main part is made up of regulars, families, and younger people.

Last but not least, from Parc Chanot, you are not far from the famous Parc National des Calanques and the Calanque de Sugiton, the 42th Top Beach in the World, according to FlightNetwork's The World’s Best Beaches for 2018©.
