Parc Marcel Guelfucci, central Park of Istres
In periods of strong heat, if you are looking for shaded outdoor places to spend moments with your family, the Marcel Guelfucci park will be the ideal place: a 22 hectare pine forest near the city center, the Berre pond and the Educational and Cultural Center!
PLACE OF RELAXATION AND WALKCompletely pedestrianized and secure, you can explore this park by bike, scooter, gyropods, on foot or on rollerblades ... with your children. The choice is yours!
PLACE OF LIFE AND SPORTGames for children, free access tennis courts, football pitch, pétanque, picnic areas and a skate park for training or attending spectacular improvised exhibitions ...
IN THE SHADOW OF PINEYou have enough to avoid sunburn and sunstroke when the southern sun is strong!
The park has two play areas protected from the sun. One of them is even located entirely under the pines.
Picnic tables for lunch or afternoon tea with your children are also suitable. But maybe you would prefer the lawns of the park?
FOUNTAINS AND WATER JETThe park is equipped with fountains and water jets. Beyond their aesthetic side, they especially have the merit of refreshing your pitchouns after an hour of games on the many attractions of the park: tennis court, skate park or even sports arena ...
You also have a water point with an artistic fountain set up by the Municipal Youth Council and the artist Jérémy Dramard last year near the skate park.
A TRAIL TO LEARN ABOUT BIODIVERSITYA botanical trail in the heart of the park offers a new learning tool for children while strolling. This pedestrian path provides families with insight into biodiversity (flora and fauna), which can be found on site, thanks to illustrated signage. To discover !
In short, don't hesitate any longer and take advantage of this park for family moments under the song of Provençal cicadas!
