La Haye-Fouassière was once an intense hub of activity where sand would be transported via wooden barges pulled by men or horses over a towpath. The skiffs would also be used to transport wine, lime, and a type of cake called fouace, which gave the town its name.
With the generous participation of 100 Détours (a company specializing in upcycling exterior wooden carpentry), this Sèvre River-side site has been transformed through an installation of fixed, submersible outdoor furniture (shareable benches and tables named Embarquement I and II). And, since the summer of 2020, it has been home to a new playground: Embarquement III.
