The City of Nantes has installed an ephemeral, open-air nursery on the banks of the Loire River. Here, the public can stroll and discover the 1000 different species of trees that will be planted in the city’s future urban projects, from now until 2020.
Recreation areas have been set up for the occasion including a refreshment area, picnic tables, and benches. The area is lively and decorated by artists who are present on-site every day. They invite the public to participate in their creations and playfully introduce them to the wealth of tree species on display.
