Emmanuelle de Marande park

Bon Pin park

Located a few metres from the Collège des Mimosas, this park marks the end of the Capitou district and the exit of our area. A refuge for Mediterranean trees, it also hosts the flower fetish of our city, the mimosa. In February, the flowering time, the winter sun gives the park golden, vibrant colours in the image of our illuminated hills.

A future mimosa museum

Mandelieu-La Napoule is the mimosa capital (with part of the Tanneron Massif in its region which is home to the largest forest in Europe). Our flower of the sun is celebrated every year in February at an identity festival and carnival, which has become the third winter event in the Côte d'Azur.

This attachment to the southern flower lead our city dedicating a museum to the mimosa, in Emmanuelle de Marande park. This museum will display most of the varieties of mimosas in the form of a botanical journey over the entire area, which is 13,000 m². An AGENDA 21 action which aims to preserve this botanical and cultural heritage.

Access: Avenue Général Garbay and Chemin du Bon Pin
Area: 13,000 m²
Vegetation: Mimosa trees, oaks, pines, acacias
