Park and garden
Parc des Chantiers
On a former shipyard

As the headquarters of the “Machines de l’île”, the park is now a fun and educational site.

At Nantes’s former shipyard, the landscaper Alexandre Chemetoff has designed a park which reveals the history of the site and where botany gets the upper hand on horticulture. Each strip and terrace has its own plant-based atmosphere.

Nantes is transforming

Nantes is changing to become an even more ecological, inclusive, and dynamic city. To do this, new public works will reinforce our already existing ecofriendly modes of transport: new tram lines, green zones for pedestrians and cyclists, and more. From 2024, these major urban projects will disrupt traffic around Les Machines de l’Île and Parc des Chantiers, with the Pont Anne-de-Bretagne bridge closed off to cars (the bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists). Solutions will be offered throughout construction to make it easier for everyone to get around, like: increased frequency of several public transport lines, more Naolib bike-share bicycles, and more parking spots in park-and-ride lots.
