Beautiful park in the centre of the city where locals meet. Some nights there are lively local food stalls and entertainment where people meet, eat together and linger. A great way to taste local New Caledonian lifestyle and join in.

We were there on the weekend. We had been to the market and went to the Place because there was Cultural event taking place. There was music and dance by different ethnic groups. We had lunch there and it was very pleasant.

This is a park near the downtown of Noumea which is walking distance from the ferry station or ship terminal downtown. A great place to stroll with friends or just chill on a park bench under a tree.

An interesting spot to sit and watch people go by. Best part is the free wifi that you can access, provided by the city council!

Felt this was the heart of Noumea in so many ways. Great to see the locals just enjoying the surrounds.
