The park's 4 seasons

Every season, the Champ des Bruyères urban nature park comes alive for a weekend: workshops, walks, exhibitions, meetings for young and old… The park will come alive with the colors of summer on June 24 and 25, 2023.

The 4 seasons of the Park

A veritable green lung for the Metropole, the new Champ des Bruyères urban nature park offers recreational uses and preservation of biodiversity. In particular, it features collective play areas for young and old alike, several paths for strolling or running, a conservatory orchard, an edible forest, a shared garden and an educational farm welcoming different audiences around the issues of tomorrow’s agriculture.
