Peaceful open space on a hill above the town centre - and there's a lift if you don't want to climb the steps! Great place for anyone who needs to walk their dogs. Plenty of shade, places to sit and even a bandstand. Loved Arcachon...More

Could be considered as the green lung of Winter Town. Well maintained, beautiful flowers and shrubs, views up to the ocean and an old elevator to take you up. Not that big, a little gem.

Nice and quiet park with a good view on Arcachon. You can go up with the stairs or a lift. The area around is also worth a little stroll with the fancy houses.

Arcachon visitors most likely get a chance to spend few hours in this park and enjoy views of the city from its height. It also has a fenced pets playground with several benches that you can seat and let your dog play around for a...More

This is surrounded by the Ville d'Hiver on the East, South and West, and was once home to the casino, which has long since burnt down. There are splendid views of Arcachon, but the park itself does not have outstanding flora. Nonetheless, it is pleasant...More

Lovely park for an afternoon stroll with wonderful views oer the Bassin. An elevator takes you up from the downtown or down to the downtown if you wish to park up there.

This was a surprising treat. Highly recommended for its calm and beauty and views over the town. There is a choice of lift or steps up and it is so central that there is nothing to stop from visiting. One can only be grateful to...More

We stopped by on our way to the Winter town on a blissful Spring day after the rain. One would normally point that the rain had cleared the air but Arcachon doesn't really need it since the air is as clean as it can possibly...More

The Parc Mauresque got its name from the Casino Mauresque (a style from North Africa in vogue in the late 19th century). The Casino burned (arson?) 40 years ago. But the park is magnificent, has a nice playground, and a great view over the Bassin...More

Arcachon has so many fantastic sites with gorgeous views; this park is not bad, but .. when your eyes are spoiled, you become more critical. If you are in the vicinity, fine, visit it. But don’t make a detour
