Park and garden

Quai des plantes

Ephemeral , open-air plant nursery on the banks of the Loire

Green walk on the Quai de la Fosse.

All summer, the banks of the Loire were transformed into a plant nursery, a guinguette, deckchairs, picnic tables and a plant market.

People could eat, dance and have a drink on this dock where sailors landed seeds and plants imported colonies from the 17th century.

The walking area, with its tree squares and benches-loungers, will remain accessible to the public all winter.



Open 24h/day until 27 October.
